Delayed delivery of Brazilian aircraft irks RI | The Jakarta Post - April 29, 2014

--- Quote ---The ministry signed a US$284 million contract with Embraer in 2010 to build a squadron of Super Tucanos to replace the OV-10 Bronco aircraft, which have been in service since 1976.

The Tucano is designed for light attack, counter insurgency, close air support, aerial reconnaissance missions in low threat environments, as well as providing pilot training.

Under the contract, Embraer has been required to pay a penalty of 0.1 percent on a daily basis since the delay, but the combined penalty is capped at a maximum of 5 percent.

Embraer, according to Asep, has paid the maximum penalty of around $7 million and cannot be issued with more fines, regardless of the length of the delay.

Embraer delivers planes to Indonesia |

--- Quote ---Brazil's top planemaker Embraer said it delivered four light attack A-29 Super Tucano aircraft to the Indonesian Air Force at a ceremony held Monday at its facility located some 270 kilometers (165 miles) from here.

The planes are part of eight such planes ordered by the Indonesians in 2010 to replace a fleet of OV-10 Broncos.

Embraer said that the Indonesian Air Force has since ordered a second batch of eight Super Tucanos as part of their equipment modernization drive.

The Super Tucano can be used for a broad range of missions including light attack, surveillance, air-to-air interception and counter-insurgency.
