The RC-12 aircraft was first used as part of the US Army's Guardrail program. The special electronic mission aircraft (SEMA) used in the Guardrail system were initially based on the U-21 Ute aircraft, until transitioning to the C-12 Huron aircraft as part of the Improved Guardrail V program. The airframe includes navigation, avionics and survivability equipment. RC-12 and RC-12-like aircraft were then used for a wide array of programs requiring SEMA.

Ghost ReconEdit

In 2013, one was shot down over Nicaragua. It was carrying the Guardrail IX, a top-secret communications device, which was subsequently seized and sold to Mexican rebels.
