Afghan Tucanos at Night

Afghan Tucanos at Night 25 December, 2018

Afghanistan continues to increase its light attack ability. The Afghan Air Force gained night flight capability with the A-29 Super Tucano aircraft as a result of the trainings carried out in this direction.

SNC (Sierra Nevada Corporation) said the aircraft had a night flight capability. However, due to inadequate experience, this capability has been used for the first time since January 2016. In the first night, pilots released real ammunition. The fact that the pilots make more accurate shots thanks to aircrafts low flying speed capability. This is an important advantage for Afghanistan. In this way, the force can destroy their targets with conventional free fall bombs without the need for precision guidance kits.
