A-29 Super Tucano
An A-29 Super Tucano flies over Afghanistan during a training mission April 6, 2016. The A-29 is a light attack aircraft that can be armed with two 500-pound bombs, twin .50-caliber machine guns and rockets. Aircrews are trained on aerial interdiction and armed overwatch missions that enable a pre-planned strike capability. The Afghan air force currently has eight A-29s but will have 20 by the end of 2018. Train, Advise, Assist Command-Air (TAAC-Air) works daily with the Afghan air force to help build a professional, sustainable and capable air force. (U.S. Air Force photo by Capt.
