Brazil C-1A Traders
Listed in numerical order by US Navy Bureau Number
The aircraft below were purchased by Brazil in 2011 and will be converted to turbine engine aircraft by Marsh Aviation in Mesa, AZ. 
An October Update from Camilo in Brazil on the status of the Traders.
"The Brazilian Navy and March Aviation Company signed yesterday, Oct 20 2011, the contract for  the modernization/remotorization/reconfiguration of four (out of eight bought) C-1A Traders to the Carrier-on-Board Delivery/Air-to-Air Refueling (COD/AAR) KC-2 Turbo Trader standard.
The contract has a four years duration and the first aircraft is scheduled to be delivered in April 2014 and the fourth and last in October 2015.
The Turbo Trader will be used on board Brazilian Navy Aircraft Carrier A-12 Sao Paulo (ex-French Navy Foch).
Click on the link bellow to see an artistic impression of the KC-2 in BN colors. I don't know if this is the official paint scheme. Probably just what it is, i.e., an enthusiast artistic impression based on BN paint scheme standards."
