Embraer, in partnership with Sierra Nevada Corp, have been announced the winner of the contest to supply 20 aircraft to serve the Afghan military under the Defense Light Air Support programme run by the US Department of Defense. The A-29 Super Tucano has been selected over Beechcraft’s AT-6B Texan II Light Attack Aircraft. This success was confirmation of the company’s earlier selection (this first decision was challenged unsuccessfully by Beechcraft).
Deliveries of the first batch are expected to be completed by April 2015.
The Super Tucano is highly capable in the light Close Air support mission and serves with several air forces, mainly in South America.
