(RTTNews) - Brazilian aircraft maker Embraer received a firm order for six A-29 Super Tucano class fighters from an undisclosed customer.

The aircraft, which is designed to light attack and advanced training, as well as tactical training and ISR missions (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance), will be delivered by 2018.

According to the manufacturer, the A-29 Super Tucano is a turboprop aircraft capable of running a wide range of missions, even operating on unprepared runways.

Embraer also said that in more than ten years of operation, the Super Tucano has more than 320 thousand hours of flight and more than 40 thousand hours of combat.

The Philippines Department of National Defense (DND) has signed a contract with Embraer to procure the EMB 314 Super Tucano turboprop trainer/light attack aircraft, officials told Jane’s on 30 November.

The acquisition, which has a value of PHP4.96 billion (USD99 million), features six platforms and meets a requirement in the Philippine Air Force (PAF) for a close-air support (CAS) aircraft to support counter-insurgency operations.

Under the terms of the contract, which also includes a logistics programme through which the Super Tucanos will be supported in the Philippines, the aircraft are scheduled to be delivered to the PAF at the end of 2019.

Not necessarily "signed" yet, since the contract is still being crafted by the DND.

MANILA -- The Department of National Defense (DND) has selected Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer Defense and Security as the supplier of its six brand-new close air support aircraft (CASA) which has a contract of PHP4,968,000,000.

This was confirmed by DND public affairs office chief Arsenio Andolong who said the company will be supplying its turboprop A-29 "Super Tucano" light attack aircraft.

He added that the notice to proceed has been issued sometime this week.

"Yes. A Notice to Proceed for the supply and delivery of six close air support aircraft has been transmitted to and received by Embraer Defense and Security," Andolong said when sought for confirmation on whether the contract was indeed bagged by Embraer.

"The aircraft that was selected after a rigorous public bidding process that was participated in by several manufacturers from different countries was the Super Tucano A-29, which is compliant with the stringent technical specifications required by the PAF (Philippine Air Force)," he added.

Andolong said the contract is now being crafted for signing by DND Secretary Delfin Lorenzana.
Never assume unless it is highly stated.

It's already a firm order Mr. Pitz, and Embraer is already confirming because it's in the bag. The signing is now just a formality.
