The Air Force is planning to buy four to six light attack aircraft over the coming months, it announced in a press release.
It will purchase two to three Textron Aviation AT-6 aircraft to be stationed at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., and two to three Sierra Nevada Corporation/Embraer Defense & Security A-29 Aircraft to send to Air Force Special Operations Command at Hurlburt Field, Fla.
Air Force and Navy pilots have flown both aircraft extensively over the past two years to test their capability, according to the release.
