The E-2C ‘Hawkeye’ is the Navy’s all weather Airborne Early Warning and Command and Control aircraft. As a carrier deployed aircraft, the ‘Hawkeye’ is capable of expanding the eyes of the Carrier Strike Group hundreds of miles greatly expanding the Navy’s ability to influence land, sea, and air battles. The E-2C crew regularly controls maritime and land strikes, strike group air defense, and many other missions including battlefield management and search and rescue operations.
