Brazil approves sale of aircrafts to Nigeria

The Brazil Embraer Defence and Security Limited disclosed that the Brazilian Government has given approval for the sale of its three serviceable pre-owned Super Tucano A-29 attack aircraft to Nigeria.

The acquisition of this aircraft by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is expected to boost its operational capabilities in tackling insurgence and militancy in the country. Aside its deployment for Surveillance, Reconnaissance and counter-insurgency missions, the aircraft could also carry a wide array of armaments, including precision guided monitors, advance avionic, communications and sensors. Additionally, the aircraft can also operate in remote and un-paved airfield while the maximum speed of the aircraft is approximately 590 kilometres per hour.

Conveying the approval to the Chief of Air Staff (CAS) Air Mshl Sadique Abubakar at the NAF Headquarters Abuja, the Embraer Contract Negotiator, Mr Eneias de Souza Freitas said, “the Brazilian Ministry of Defence has informed them that approval for the sell of 3 Super Tucano A-29 aircraft to Nigeria has been given,” adding that Brazilian government has authorized its Air Force to transfer the aircraft to Embraer Defence and Security, for onward delivering to the NAF.

Mr Freitas further said that the legal requirement and procedures were being finalized by the Brazilian Air Force while promising to facilitate the legal process “this is of concerned to us, we will for sure take your message back to the people with the legal procedures to quicken the process.” Mr Freitas said.

Meanwhile, the CAS disclosed that the idea by the NAF to acquire Super Tucano A-29 aircraft was mooted in 2015 and appropriated in the 2016 Budget. He urged the company to facilitate the procurement process to enable the NAF take delivering of the aircraft within reasonable time.

The CAS added that a team of NAF officers would visit Brazil to further inspect the aircraft. Nigeria also intends to purchase new Super Tucano A-29 aircraft from the United State. Mr Freitas was accompanied by the Embraer Director of Business Development, Europe and Africa, Mr Jose Gustavo.

Another Dasukigate in the making. They'll use this medium to loot the treasury dry as usual. Nigeria and corruption are like 5 and 6. They've reduced this country to a loaf of bread. Biko, where is our missing president?

Nice addition to our Air power, but we should also purchase two to three Brazilian professionals(pre-owned or not) to help man the aircraft since our own pilots are clueless.

Ghana's Air Force To Expand Super Tucano A-29 Planes Acquisition Amid Negotiations With Brazil's Embraer Defense
Ghana’s air force has plans to expand next year with the acquisition of four additional Super Tucano A-29s, popular turboprop-powered aircraft with light attack, reconnaissance and training capabilities. Air Vice-Marshal Michael Samson-Oje said last week his team is close to concluding predelivery negotiations with Embraer Defense, a Brazilian aerospace company, Defense News reported Friday.

If finalized, the deal will increase Ghana’s A-29 quantity to nine. The latest negotiations follow Ghana’s pre-existing contract with Embraer for the supply of five A-29s, which was confirmed by both sides at the Paris Air Show in June.

The A-29, also known as the EMB-314, is racking up global orders and is expanding its footprint in Ghana along with other African nations, including Angola, Burkina Faso, Mauritania and Senegal. These countries joined Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala and Indonesia as customers for this aircraft.

'You cannot buy technology. If you try to, you'll suffer. Technology is better owned'. Prof. Aderibigbe, Mech. Engr., UNILAG. This is evident in the accidental bombing of those IDP's.

The industrialization of Nigeria should be our most paramount project. Unfortunately, this cannot be achieved without stable power supply.
