PARIS, Jan 16 (KUNA) -- Egypt has placed a second order for six Airbus C295 "new generation" military transports, which makes the European plane the market leader for such transport plane orders, Airbus said in a statement Wednesday.
Egypt has now 12 of the planes on order, in addition to signing a contract for spare parts, support equipment, training and field support.
