Norfolk VAW-120 Greyhawks E-2C and C-2A poster art.
The Carrier Airborne Command and Control Squadron 120 (VAW-120) is a United States Navy airborne early warning (AEW) squadron. Nicknamed The “Greyhawks”, they fly the E-2 Hawkeye along with the C-2A Greyhound in order to provide early warning, battlefield information and transportation to the carrier group. The mission of VAW-120 is to provide command and control leadership as well as provide high priority logistics support to aircraft carrier strike groups. The Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye is an American all-weather, carrier-capable tactical airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft. This twin-turboprop aircraft was designed and developed during the late 1950s and early 1960s by the Grumman Aircraft Company for the United States Navy as a replacement for the earlier E-1 Tracer, which was rapidly becoming obsolete. The Grumman C-2 Greyhound is a twin-engine, high-wing cargo aircraft, designed to carry supplies and mail to and from aircraft carriers of the United States Navy. Its primary mission is carrier onboard delivery (COD). The aircraft provides critical logistics support to carrier strike groups.
