Textron Aviation Defense has announced the completion of negotiations with the U.S. Air Force for the sale of two AT-6 Wolverine aircraft. These are light attack/ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance) aircraft with a final agreement price of $70.2 million for the aircraft, pilot training, and services. “Our focus is on how a light attack aircraft can help our allies and partners as they confront violent extremism and conduct operations within their borders,” commented Air Force Chief of Staff General David Goldfein. The Air Combat Command will have the Wolverines in Nevada to begin training and work on the systems. A communications system that provides better contact between troops, allies, and partner forces is being extensively looked into.
