We are proud to share these photos of the first of 12 A-29 Super Tucano light attack, combat and reconnaissance aircraft for the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) painted in full combat colors.
The fleet of A-29s for the NAF are in production by SNC and Embraer at the Jacksonville facility.
All the aircraft are scheduled to be delivered to Nigeria in 2021.
After painting is complete, each NAF A-29 will move to mission modification and final testing in Centennial, Colorado. Following final testing, before delivery, Nigerian Air Force pilots and maintenance personnel will train on the aircraft.
The combat-proven A-29 Super Tucano is the gold standard of light attack combat and reconnaissance aircraft around the world and is designed and built for the counter-terrorism mission in Nigeria.
