The Embraer EMB 314 Super Tucano is a Brazilian light-attack single born out of a need for a lower-cost aerial platform to support combatant commanders. The tiers of close air support (CAS) jump from attack helicopters to full-size fighter-attack jets. That is a huge leap, especially when it entails pulling full-size assets away from high-threat environments to operate in low-threat environments. The A-29 bridges the gap between a helicopter's operating limitations and a fighter jet's cost. It is equipped with several hard points suited for non-precision and precision munitions alike.
Light attack aircraft like the A-29 are great assets for smaller countries that run counter-narcotics operations. Relatively inexpensive to operate, the A-29 uses the most popular and common turboprop in the world, the PT6A-68C. Boasting an impressive eight-plus hour of endurance, the A-29 can operate out of austere airstrips in remote regions and orbit for hours, waiting for strike orders. The key to keeping the A-29 fleet combat-ready is a reliable supply of parts. Breakage occurs in combat, especially when you’re flying out of grass strips, dirt & gravel runways, or rutted pavement.
The best hedge of defense against unplanned delays from the aircraft comes in a readily available supply of parts so that you can get them when you need them. Instead of wasting your time sourcing the parts and jumping through hoops to get it, let Greenwood Aerospace take care of it.
