It has a Kevlar armour protection; two internal, wing-mounted .50 cal. machine guns (with 200 rounds of ammunition each); capacity to carry various ordnance on five weapon hardpoints including 20 mm cannon pods, air-to-air missiles (AAMs), bombs, and SBAT-70/19 rocket pods on its underwing stations; and has a night-vision goggle-compatible "glass cockpit".
