  • HISTORY ASPECTS:During Operation Desert Storm in 1991, the E-2C Hawkeye, operated by VAW-124 “Bear Aces,” played a critical role in shaping the course of the conflict in the Middle East. The E-2C Hawkeye was an airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft, known for its distinctive radar dome perched on top of its fuselage. It provided crucial surveillance, command, and control capabilities, ensuring that allied forces had a comprehensive view of the battlefield and enabling swift responses to emerging threats.Operating from the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, the Bear Aces and their E-2C Hawkeyes were at the forefront of Operation Desert Storm. Their primary missions included monitoring Iraqi aircraft, tracking incoming missile threats, and coordinating the movement of friendly forces. The Hawkeye’s radar system, with its ability to detect and track multiple targets simultaneously, was instrumental in safeguarding coalition aircraft and ships in the region. While the E-2C Hawkeye itself was not armed, its role in enhancing situational awareness and command and control capabilities was indispensable.This 1:72 scale model faithfully replicates the Hawkeye’s design, from its signature radar dome to its authentic markings. Whether you are a military aviation aficionado, a collector, or simply appreciate the craftsmanship of finely detailed models, this E-2C Hawkeye serves as a remarkable addition to your collection. Display it proudly and commemorate the legacy of the Bear Aces and the E-2C Hawkeye’s contributions to the success of Operation Desert Storm.
