The Super Tucano was in the news earlier this year after beating Hawker Beechcrafts T-6 for an Air Force contract worth more than $350 million for 20 airplanes slated to go to the Afghan military, a deal that was later negated after Hawker Beechcraft filed a lawsuit.
So it would be good to depend on a foreign company for military contracts?

Right! The Afghans are exactly who I want to see get these. Why don’t we arrange to sent a couple hundred to Hamas?

Martin/Baker makes most of our ejection seats. Our USAF/USN/USMC aviators sure depend on them.
