In 2000 Algeria ordered 6 of the larger 1900D’s to meet a requirement for a Multi Mission Surveillance Aircraft (MMSA).

Mounted under the fuselage in a large fairing is the HISAR. The aircraft are also equipped with Sky Guardian ESM and Wescam Type 16 FLIR and it is believed that a SIGINT function will also be added at a later date.


The Beechcraft 1900 is a 19-passenger, pressurized twin-engine turboprop fixed-wing aircraft manufactured by the Beechcraft Division of the Raytheon Company (now Textron Aviation). It was designed, and is primarily used, as a regional airliner. It is also used as a freight aircraft and corporate transport and by the United States military and other governments.
