Super Tucano to fly in the colors of the Indonesian Air Force

First Super Tucano sale in Asia Pacific includes ground support stations and logistics package

São José dos Campos, November 2010 – Embraer has won a competition held by the Indonesian Ministry of Defense to supply eight Super Tucano light attack turboprops for the Indonesian Air Force. The deal includes ground support stations and an integrated logistics package, and represents the debut of the Super Tucano in the Asia Pacific region. Deliveries will begin in 2012.

The Super Tucano has been chosen to replace a fleet of OV-10 Broncos, due to its flexibility to perform a broad range of missions, including light attack, surveillance, air-to-air interception, and counter insurgence. The Super Tucano is a mature, action-proven airplane, with more than 100,000 flight hours, always demonstrating superb mission efficiency and reliability.

Equipped for military missions and designed to operate from unpaved runways, the Super Tucano’s unmatched weaponry capacity comes with a wide variety of external options, including conventional and laser-guided bombs, air-to-air missiles, and others. The aircraft is also equipped with Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) sensors, including laser designator, and secure radios with datalink communications.
