Beechcraft C-12 Huron airplane model. The C-12 Huron, a twin turboprop passenger and cargo aircraft, is the military version of the Beechcraft Super King Air. The US Army ordered 60 military passenger-carrying King Air B200s, designated the C-12A, beginning in FY1973. Worldwide deployment began in July 1975, with a total of 380 ordered by US armed forces by the late 1990s. The C-12 aircraft, manufactured by Raytheon Aircraft Company (RAC) (formerly Beech Aircraft Corporation), is a high-performance, T-tail, pressurized, monoplane that accommodates places for a pilot, co-pilot, and passengers. This all-metal, low wing, twin turbo-prop aircraft is powered by two Pratt and Whitney PT6A-41/42/65 turbo prop engines.
The Governments C-12 aircraft fleet is similar to the Beech Super King Air 200 1900C which is operated extensively around the world by many private and commercial users. The aircraft provides operational support for military bases, sites, fleet and shore units.
