A-29 propeller attack aircraft

Ma Yan, a reporter from the global network, reported on the website of Janes Defense Weekly on September 18 that Afghanistan had received four more a-29 super Toucan propeller type light attack aircraft, and the delivery ceremony was held at the Kabul International Airport on September 17.

NATO announced on the same day that the delivery brought the number of a-29 owned by the Afghan air force to 23, 18 of which are in Afghanistan and the rest are currently at Moody Air Force Base in Virginia.

The a-29 super Toucan has been operating in Afghanistan since the beginning of 2016. Since then, it has become the only fixed wing fighter of the Afghan air force. Its range, speed, life and availability (including the ability to launch precision guided munitions) enable it to operate effectively throughout Afghanistan. (end)
