Super Tucano's to Lebanon

An interesting article about an A-29 sale of six Tucano’s to Lebanon. Really cool airplane…but that sales price seems incredibly high. Yeah, I understand the contract is probably for airframes, training, and support, but wow…$77 Million per aircraft…for a light turboprop??

Sure is a bad-ass looking aircraft though…


A bit of grease to ease the squeaky wheel in that pricing I reckon. :smile:

that deal includes some 8 engines, 8 countermeasure dispensers, 8 missile launch detectors and some 2000 precision munitions. I can’t really figure out what munitions in what quantities, but atleast some of them are AGM-114 Hellfire II missiles.

I wonder how many f111’s you can buy for 77mil. :wink:
