This is the Embraer EMB-135BJ Legacy which was acquired by Greece in January 2003.

The ERJ135 / 140 / 145 family of the Brazilian Embraer has been a great success as a fast and comfortable regional airliner.
The variant received was the LR, with a dense seating arrangement, followed by the BJ version in 2002. Their main mission is to transport government officials to all domestic and European destinations, perform social work by transporting patients and also act as training platforms for EMB-145H AEW&C operators.
The first place in a competition for sustainability was won by students from Heraklion, Crete, who built a submarine.
The PSIM mast was installed on the first Greek FDI frigate “KIMON”, as shown in a video published by the manufacturing company Naval Group.
