The A-29 Super Tucano is a combat proven, mission ready aircraft now being delivered for the U.S. Air Force Light Air Support mission.
American Made. The Super Tucano is proudly built in Jacksonville, Fla., and some 100 companies in over 20 states provide components and services to support the mission.
The Light Air Support mission requires a low cost solution that provides engagement and persistence that the war fighter needs in a counter insurgency environment. This aircraft must deliver precision guided munitions and operate in extremely rugged terrain.
Best for the Warfighter. The Super Tucano meets all the requirements of the LAS mission and then some. It provides the highly advanced avionics and communications that pilots need. It makes no compromises when it comes to crew survivability, aircraft controllability or combat effectiveness.
