Still waiting for an explanation as to why Nigeria had to buy those toys for $50million a piece.

The canals hurriedly signed off funds for their own pocket in the guise to get this.

The most IGNORANT person is the one who believes the price shown on Wikipedia. It is a sign of mental timidity and lack of research prowess. All the Super Tucano airfraft and systems bought by Iraq and Afghanistan are the same price as Nigeria's.
The aircraft is not a jet. It is a slow subsonic aircraft carrying advanced surveillance and prevision wraponry forbkilling insurgents that are hiding in forests and caves. The US air force has the most advanced aircraft in the world, they are still buying Super Tucanoes

Buhari is always right. What is $50 million apiece? Why must Nigerian youths be lazy?. Do you know the world is a global village and you are competing with other races and nationals. Why don't you shake yourself out of the rut?
The package is for
- aircraft
- system integration wirks
- training of pilots and engineers. The pilots are 2 per plane.
- hundreds of bombs and bomb kits
- thousands of rockets and steer kits
- hangers and
- repair tools


Buying capability is not like buying a car in a showroom. Get educated , broaden your knowledge base.

The price is absolutely prohibitive. And I have a bias for western weaponry.

And it is not even an air superiority fighter that can also be used for airspace defence .
