C'est la même gamme (au sens large). Mais ils ne sont pas interchangeables comme une vw golf et une ford escort
Le pb pour le C295, c'est que le C235 n'a même pas les mêmes moteurs...
Sinon c'est aussi 4% de gain
Flight testing already performed using winglets as part of
risk-reduction work for a proposed airborne early warning and control
system variant of the C295 also demonstrated an average 4% reduction in
fuel consumption, says Gustavo Garcia Miranda, Airbus Military's head of
market development. The proposed surveillance version of the aircraft
would have a maximum altitude of 26,000ft (7,930m) and an almost 9h
endurance with the winglets installed, he adds.
Commercial activities linked to the C295W will be launched before the
end of May 2013, following the completion of an analysis of handling
qualities linked to a preliminary design. A design freeze is expected
during September, and certification from Spain's INTA airworthiness
authority is being targeted for the second quarter of 2014.
Airbus Military displayed a winglet-equipped C295W demonstrator at its San Pablo final assembly site in Seville,
Spain on 29 May. The airframe modification will also be available as a
retrofit option for existing operators, the company says.

Peut être voir la mission : Search & Rescue, SAR !
Beaucoup d'heures de patrouille et de surveillance , et des interventions assez rares !
Ca peut se jouer sur les équipements proposés, les capacités d'emport, le coût de l'heure et la Conso !
Bon, Paul pense que c'est la commonality avec le C-130 qui aura le plus influencé !
3500 l ça fait rudement peu !In a firefighting configuration, the aircraft will be fitted with two 3,500-liter tanks in the cargo bay of the aircraft. Although the configuration requires holes to be cut into the aircraft’s fuselage, Airbus Military officials say that the belly-mounted option provides the most effective configuration for water release.
Antonio Rodriguez Barberan, the head of commercial at Airbus Military Aircraft, said that aside from the Ecuador order the company had also secured orders this year for a further 17 C295s from undisclosed customers.
These included eight from North Africa, two Middle East customers and a first intelligence and surveillance variant delivery in Latin America, he said.
The executive said he expected to add to the order tally “very soon” with an announcement of a Middle East special operations customer.
Peter Maute, the head of marketing at Military Aircraft , said that a new C295 with winglets and other enhanced performance features is on track for certification by October.
The enhancements offer a larger payload from hot and high airfields. Generally, range is increased by 9 percent and fuel savings could be as high as 6.5 percent on a typical mission of 5-ton payload at 1,000 nautical miles.
