The first of 12 A-29 Super Tucano light attack, combat and reconnaissance aircraft for the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) successfully completed its inaugural flight at the production facility in Jacksonville, Florida.

The full fleet of A-29 Super Tucano aircraft for the NAF are currently in production by SNC and Embraer at the Jacksonville facility with delivery to the NAF expected on schedule in 2021, Embraer Defense & Security and Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) announced today.

The NAF A-29 aircraft will now begin mission modification and final testing in Centennial, Colorado. Following final testing, before delivery, NAF pilots will train in the aircraft.

“This is an exciting milestone in the production of these A-29s for the Nigerian Air Force. The Jacksonville production line is active, and Embraer and SNC look forward to seeing these aircraft continue to roll off the line in the coming months,” says Jackson Schneider, president & CEO, Embraer Defense & Security.

“The aircraft met or exceeded all the requirements and we are very pleased with the successful flight,” stated Ed Topps, vice president of Tactical Aircraft Systems and programs for SNC’s IAS business area.

Nigeria ordered these aircraft to combat the increasing threat of Boko Haram terrorists that has been plaguing the African nation for nearly a decade now. Nigeria has in recent times received tanks and armored vehicles from China, the Super Mushak trainer from Pakistan and is scheduled to receive the JF-17 fighter jet from Pakistan this November.

If PDP or Jonathan were still ruling this country the money for this would have been looted.

This light air support aircraft can only be used in operations against terrorists or enemies who lack air defence systems.

I don't think Nigeria need F 22 to fight boko haram. US also use the aircraft to fight the taliban in Afghanistan.

Stupidity and this government cannot be separated. See how a fighter jet be like a toy .

It is best as surveillance aircraft not to fight some terrorist.

How will this kind of aircraft have accurate guidance system? We will soon hear mistakingly bombing villagers unknowingly.

Modified.

I see some illiterates and ignorant souls quoting me.

See for yourself. Is what is in the picture you want to use to fight a terrorist organisation in existence for more than 10 years?
I am into the system. Keep shut if you dont have idea.

Think with your head.

I don't understand... Which fighter jet uses propeller in this generation of anti aircraft guns.

This one can't fly fast and high enough to avoid AAG.
