Brazil’s Akaer company is showing a conceptual multi-role aircraft called Mosquito at the 2019 LAAD Defence and Security exposition. Mosquito is designed to perform missions ranging from airborne C2 to armed ISR and aerial refuelling. Company believes that twin-engine aircraft may provide better visibility than competitors Super Tucano and Wolverine.
Aircraft may conceptually perform missions such as close air support (CAS); intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR); armed ISR; and aerial refuelling. It could also perform combat search and rescue (CSAR); communications intelligence; air defence; airborne command and control (C2); and battlefield interdiction.
