Props are more fuel efficient, lighter and better for short takeoffs, also better for non paved runways.

Turbofans have higher power to weight and faster cruising speed which makes them better for long journeys.

Reflects a different need, a400m designed to fly into forward operating bases in the combat theatre, often to unpaved hastily built temporary airfields. C2 is designed to ferry between distant fixed main operating bases Usually well established with paved runways, or to islands with short paved runways.
