Senior Embraer executive Caetano Neto an interview with ” Live Mint” said that the firm hopes to sell India’s A-29 Super Tuscano Light attack aircraft that Embraer believes can be used for close air support, forward area surveillance and ISR, to name a few to IAF, Indian Navy, Coast Guard and border security forces like the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) and the Border Security Force (BSF).
A-29 Super Tuscano can also complete other missions that some countries are interested in, such as border patrol and pipeline surveillance.
A-29 can be equipped with 250- and 500-pound laser-guided bombs and the AGR-20 Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System, .50 Cal machine guns, and other capabilities for gravity bombs and illumination flares.
The A-29C, conversely, is equipped with mission systems and 4th-generation cockpit technologies like touch screens that are non-releasable U.S. Air Force systems. Embraer expects that the A-29C will receive its Military Type Certificate either later this year or early 2023.
