Peru Naval Fokker 50 Seba Borsero 640First SIGINT Fokker 50 for Peru

The first Fokker 50 of the Comandancia de la Fuerza de Aviación Naval de la Marina de Guerra del Perú (AVINAV, Peruvian Naval Aviation Command) AE567 (constrcutio number 20253) is nearly finished being converted to a signals intelligence (SIGINT) aircraft.

It has been at the Fábrica Argentina de Aviones (FAdeA) at Córdoba since September 2020 undergoing these modifications and that also explains the duration of the work. Details on the installed suite are not known but Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is a co-contractor for this, so we expect some advanced gear.

As a side note, this Fokker started life with the Royal Netherlands Air Force as U-05 in December 1996.
