Over time their equipment has been upgraded to the E-2B, E-2C, E-2C Hawkeye 2000 (HE2K) and the E-2C+ Group II and E-2C 164496 MSN A-159 received an 8-blade propeller. Previous to flying with VAW-126 E-2C 164496 flew with VAW-120, Vaw-124 and VAW-121. The aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman made its maiden voyage with VAW-126 assigned to it and they have been together ever since.

Grumman E-2C Hawkeye

Designed as a replacement for the E-1 Tracer, the Grumman E-2 Hawkeye was first flown in 1960. This all-weather tactical Airborne Early Warning aircraft is the only aircraft-carrier capable aircraft to carry a large rotating dome, which houses the antennas for its long-range radars. Used primarily by the US Navy, the E-2 provides surveillance and airborne early warning of anti-ship and enemy aircraft attacks. Sometimes called "The Hummer" because of its distinctive engine sounds, the E-2 is one of only two propeller airplanes that currently operate from aircraft carriers. The E-2 is still undergoing upgrades, with the modern E-2D taking its first flight in August 2007.
