Default New Aircraft after Falkland map

Hey gents,
Razbam just posted a new cross sectional of a new aircraft they said will be done after the Falklands map. The photo is on their Facebook page. Can anyone tell me what aircraft that is. It did not appear to be the OV-10 so it has peaked my curiosity. I saw the military seats, so, no clue.

I agree after looking it up. That is what it is. Thanks! Need to research this bird. I do not know anything about it. I will still buy it though.

I'll definitely buy it.


It may not be the most popular aircraft, but for me it's very interesting turboprop COIN/light attack, well suited for Falkland map. Nice change of pace after all the fast jets.

I see interesting fights coming to the air near you - L39, C101 and Pucas against each others. Should be the most comparable fights I think? (I dont know anything about the Puca, just saw the wikipedi aarticle - But the trainers could be the best enemy they can get in our world besides WW2 planes)

Well the IA-58 Pucará is a light attack airplane, design to deal with insurgents. so basicly a COIN aircraft. its Turbo Prop, can carry shit loads of ordinance including two 20mm Hispano 802 canons and four 7.62 machine guns, plus 3,570 lb of ordinance. Dumb Bombs, Rockets, Napalm, Cluster bombs, gun pods and Even torpedos have been tried on this beast witch its original wings plans were from Kurt Tank Himself when he worked at Fabrica Militar de Aviones.

It's been known for a while, that RAZBAM plans to do the Pucara. Take a look at this 24 page long thread: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=166045

Its first flight was on 1969 it became operational in squadrons in 1975.
It is still in service in the Argentinian Airforce, Uruguay and Sri Lanka.
It saw acction in Argentina in 1975 against comun ist ERP insurgents in Argentina. In Sri Lanka against TAmil Tigers insurgents from 1993 to 1999. And was deployed in Malvinas (Falklands), in two improvides airbases, Pradera de Ganso (Goose green) and Peble Island. It did mostly armed recon, and soem groudn support missions, but gotheavy casualties from harriers and naval AAA.

Its basic role is Light attack and COIN. Now a days, its is used to intercept unidentified aircraft as part of a border patrol and anti drugs enforcemt.
