Embraer Delivers A-29 Super Tucano to Mauritania

Embraer Delivers A-29 Super Tucano to Mauritania

Brazil's top planemaker Embraer said Oct. 22 it has delivered an undisclosed number of its A-29 Super Tucano light attack aircraft to the Mauritanian Air Force.

An Embraer spokesman said several of the planes were delivered to Mauritania for the first time Oct. 19 at a ceremony in Gaviao Peixoto. But he would not say exactly how many, citing a confidentiality clause.

The Super Tucano are to be used for border surveillance missions, Embraer said.

“With this delivery, we are broadening our ties with the African continent, where this aircraft has generated great interest,” said Luiz Carlos Aguiar, president of Embraer's defense and security unit.

The aircraft, already in use by seven air forces in Latin America, Africa and Asia, can be used for a broad range of missions including light attack, surveillance, air-to-air interception and counterinsurgency.

More than 160 Super Tucano have already been delivered, according to Embraer, the world’s third-largest commercial aircraft manufacturer, behind America’s Boeing and Europe’s Airbus.
