    anyway we are Looking to Induct Transport aircraft's to replace Avros in our fleet,those Aircraft's will be acquired along Transfer of technology and will be manufactured Locally.C-295 seems a Good platform for Both the Roles,AEW variant and for Training transport purpose.Or else there are range of platforms from Boeing
