National Guard Association doesn't want C-295

The National Guard Association of the United States does not want the EADS CASA C-295 transport plane, preferring a faster aircraft.

The NGAUS's annual report for fiscal year 2004 recommended that Congress fund a competitor, the C-27, produced by EADS CASA rival Finmeccanica of Italy.

NGAUS doesn't say why it didn't want the C-295. But there's no better judge about what plane is better for the troops than the troops themselves.
