The "GABRIEL" was put into service in the French Air Force in 1989 and was first used by the 54th. Tactical Surveillance Squadron, based at METZ.
A conversion of the C 160 NG (New Generation) into an airborne electronic surveillance unit, the C 160 G "GABRIEL" remains a top secret aircraft. A row of aerials along top of fuselage, various blisters on both sides, a retractable radome under the nose, and the wing-tip pods are the main external differences from the C 160 NG.
The Transall "GABRIEL" saw active service during the Gulf war as well as in ex-Yugoslavia.
