The CASA C-295 retains the basic characteristics of the CN-235 while providing for 50% more payload (9,700 Kg) over the same range and is able to transport up to 78 troops, five 88 x 108 standard pallets or up to 27 stretchers for medical evacuation. The basic modifications are the addition of six new frames so that the total length of the cabin is increased by 3 m., now reaching 12.69 m. and the wing fuel capacity has been increased and the wing structure has also been strengthened to bear the new weights. From a performance point of view, the CASA C-295 has a cruising speed of 260 KTAS, a cruising altitude of 25,000 and a range of 730 nautical miles with a maximum payload of 9,700 kg. The landing gear are modified to sustain additional weight so that the take-off and landing maximums are equalised in order to allow immediate landing after an aborted take-off. In addition, the twin-wheeled nose gear provides operational improvements on unpaved runways. CASA markets an entire family of transport aircraft that goes from the C-212 with 3 tons, through the CN-235 at 6 tons, up to the C-295 with 9.7 tons.
