Senegal 6W TPA CN235 06apr21 640Senegal Air Force CN235MPA serial known

Where it was first expected that the serials for the new CN235-220MPA Maritime Patrol Aircraft for the Armée de l'Air du Senegal (Senegalese Air Force) would be 6W-TTD and 6W-TTE, this has now proven different. These serials were noted in November 2020 on a photo from an aircraft overview planning board of the Senegalese Air Force.

Scramble Magazine received a photo from an official ceremony on 6 April 2021, where the first delivered CN235-220MPA is seen with serial 6W-TPA.

Senegal has ordered two MPAs with PT Dirgantara Indonesia (Indonesian Aerospace). The new MPAs will most probably be operated by the Escadre de Transport at Dakar/Yoff, but it might be that a new squadron will be erected to operate the Maritime Patrol Aircraft.
