INTRODUCTION

The AAC CC107AS Argon  is a piston engined maritime patrol and ASW aircraft inspired by Avro-Canada CL-28 Argus, a derivative of the Bristol 175 Britannia which offered the RCAF an outstanding tool to monitor Canadian waters.

The CC107AS Argon  in Atlantic Air Combat™

The AAC design takes inspiration from the Argus itself, but also from other aircrafts.  Purists will hopefully forgive or take advantage of AAC's open source to carry on with a re-design of their own.  The Argon  is exclusively available under Canadian colors.
