Nice video, still wondering if the US will be smart and get a couple dozen of these, or another Light Attack plane

The answer is at the end of the video, the USAF bought several planes from the company for the Light Air Support program (I never heard of this one).

HI 33-DFTC,

You are correct, but they have some other programs with open bids. OA-X is a good example. If you want to know It, I'd recommend this link: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ligh...Reconnaissance

I hope the A-29 win this one as well.

All the best,

Sydy

I am talking about the current one that is happening/ on going involving the Textron Scorpion and others now. We bought around 20 for the Afghan Air Force and we are currently training Afghan pilots in them. They have seen use in real combat I believe in the hands of the Afghans.

This aircraft in DCS will be awesome, it's impressive how silent the Super Tucano is.

In the article I put they say the navy ops wanted it.... cheap, long holding time in station, and very short turn radius... where you can see the enemy.

I'm really intrigued by this project, given the weapons load and avionics this will be a lot of fun to fly. Some questions:
1) Will this aircraft feature a true multi-user cockpit?
2) If I had to choose I'd choose the A-29B, but might there be a single seat a A-29A at some point?
3) Does anyone think this aircraft could be incorporated into a "training program" for new DCS users before moving to the A10C?
