 C-37A Gulfstream V
Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation will deliver a C-37A (a Gulfstream V) to the U.S. Coast Guard in the second quarter of 2002; the order was received in Dec. 2000.
On 06 January 1999 Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. was awarded a $38,530,875 face value increase to a firm-fixed-price contract to provide for one C-37A aircraft and associated training and data with an expected contract completion date of 30 June 30 2000.
The C-37A resembles the C-20H (Gulfstream IV), but is eight feet longer, with a wider wing span, a more advanced avionics package and greater performance capabilities, allowing the aircraft to carry up to 12 passengers a distance 50 percent greater than the C-20B models.

Grumman proposed a wide range of possible configurations to potential buyers, and used the demonstrator to try out plausible kit such as countermeasures gear, including warning receivers and chaff-flare dispensers; a dummy inflight refueling probe; and even tanker operation using an external refueling pod.
Advocates also point out that the tail-mounted turbofans of the Gulfstream V do not block the view of underwing electronics pods, as would be the case for an EW platform based on the Boeing 737 or Airbus jetliners, which have turbofans mounted under the wings.
The chapter on the RC-7 was originally released as a stand-alone document in July 1998, and the chapter on the Grumman Mohawk was similarly released as a stand-alone document in February 2001.

Gulfstream, for instance, touts the fact that its Gulfstream V is the only one of the four aircraft to have been certified by the Federal Aviation Administration as of the first quarter of 1999.
