Deliveries of 6 brand-new light attack aircraft of the Philippine Air Force (PAF) are expected to begin by the end of February 2020, the Department of National Defense (DND) said.

This was bared by the DND Public Affairs Service when sought for an update on the possible delivery date of the Embraer Defense and Security A-29 “Super Tucano” close air support aircraft.

The “Super Tucanos” are expected to beef up the remaining North American Rockwell OV-10 “Bronco” attack aircraft being used by the PAF in strike missions. The turboprop aircraft is designed for light attack, counter-insurgency, close air support, aerial reconnaissance missions in low threat environments, as well as providing pilot training.

The contract for the six “Super Tucano” was issued late 2017 and is worth PHP4.968 billion.
