Designed and developed as a next generation AWACS platform, the E-12 Sky-Eye was built by a joint working group of Earth Avionics (responsible for the VT-1 Supercat and VGF-14 Wildcat) and General Avionics (designer of the UAV-18 AI Drone). The concept was envisioned to act as a support aircraft for the Navy, to act in conjunction with the new next generation Air Superiority fighters coming in to the arsenal. During development it was also decided to add the ability for the Sky-Eye to act as a Drone Controller Aircraft operating jointly with the UAV-18 Specter Drone for self-defense and Forward Air Control.
Since the outbreak of the Solinoid Conflict, the Sky-Eye has seen near constant use by UN Forces (as well as by the various member nations for global defense). It has also been adapted to numerous roles with-in the UN Military. The original EA-12B air-frame has been upgraded for use as an ELINT/Tanker aircraft for Aerial Refueling and Electronic Warfare, and also re-equipped to fill the AWACS Airborne Early Warning roll in the UN Fleet.
In the Bomber role, pylons on the wings and ventral fuselage are added for the aircraft to carry bombs and missiles. In the Tanker role, the EKA-12 retains its formidable array of Electronic Warfare sensors, additional fuel tanks are built in to the fuselage, and an Aerial Refueling Boom is added below the rear aft end of the fuselage. To fill the AWACS role, the EA-12 is outfitted with a large Radar Radome above the dorsal area of the Fuselage.
Though mostly relegated to secondary support roles (along side the VT-1 which it was designed to support), the EA-12 Sky-Eye continues to see wide use in the UN Military and UN Fleet air arms!
