    Default US Navy Special Ops Super Tucano

    Interesting,





    An artistic impression of the future USAF Super Tucano

    Probably there is the chance that the Pentagon will buy 100 Super Tucanos

    Nice. Thanks for the pics. This is really practical in the type of war in A-stan. No jets or major AA/SAM's to threaten them. Arm it with rockets, missiles and guns.

    What comes around goes around. Im thinking OV-1 Mohawk. Its nice to see certain modes/methods, coming back in vogue.
    Being an ex military turbo prop guy myself, I tend to have a soft spot for them especially when something new comes up.

    The aircraft were leased from XE, but are operated by US Navy pilots. They've been operating out of Fallen & China Lake for the past two years. I believe they have 4 aircraft now.
