Special Project

A-29 Super Tucano for LAS mission - U.S. Air Force's Light Air Support (LAS) mission requires an aircraft that must offer intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) support; deliver a wide variety of munitions (including precision guided weapons); and operate in extremely rugged terrain and austere conditions. ISR has teamed up with Embraer North America to offer the A-29 Super Tucano (Super T) as the best platform to meet the LAS mission. The Super T was designed without compromise from the ground up for the LAS mission. Made in America, the Super T is the only plane that meets LAS requirements today and into the future.
