The Turkmen Air Force will receive the turboprop UBS EMB-314E (A-29) Super Tucano

The Turkmen Air Force will receive the Brazilian Embraer EMB-314E (A-29) Super Tucano turboprop combat trainers. As reported aviation resource Scramble, the first two aircraft for Turkmenistan are already ready to be handed over to the customer.


According to the resource, on December 8, 2020, the first two Embraer EMB-314E (A-29) Super Tucano turboprop combat trainers were seen at the airfield of the Brazilian aircraft manufacturing company Embraer in Sao Jose dos Campos (Brazilian state of Sao Paulo) built for Turkmenistan. The number of planes ordered by Turkmenistan is not reported.

The planes are sealed with identification marks and a temporary Brazilian registration. According to available data, in the near future both aircraft will be handed over to the customer, having made an independent flight.

In turn, the bmpd blog reports that information that Turkmenistan is the likely customer of the batch of UBS EMB-314E Super Tucano has already appeared, but there was no official confirmation. In June 2019, the Super Tucano aircraft was demonstrated for the first time in Turkmenistan during a "surprise check of combat readiness" organized by Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.

Recall that earlier the Brazilian UBS EMB 314 Super Tucano (A-29) was actively interested in Ukraine. In Kiev, it was planned to replace the Brazilian aircraft L-39 Albatros. It was reported that a delegation of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine visited Brazil in 2019, and in the fall of the same year, Ukrainian pilots made familiarization flights on the A-29 in Portugal.

    From the rubric: "On the goat - the button accordion" - about modern manned aircraft for the Turkmen.
    It would be better if our drones bought or Yak 130 - all one money down the drain ...

      Turkmenbashi wants to enter the world arena through friendship with Turkey and the FSA. Apparently he forgot about the fate of Saddam Hussein and Gaddafi.

          Watch your hands. Turkey is feeding Central Asia, trying to squeeze them out of Russia and China. There is also oil and gas. Shortly before the American invasion of Afghanistan, a powerful gas field was discovered on the border with Turkmenistan. First, Italians, who were squeezed out by the Americans, then the Americans disappeared and the invasion began. A third of the field is in Afghanistan. And Erdogan dreams of the revival of the Ottoman Empire. This is a long game. Turkmenbashi needs investment. He had already been to Turkey and happily shook hands with the benefactor.

      They have a bunch of UAVs, in particular the Chang Hong-3


      They are the only foreign owners of the Sky Hawk WJ-600 medium attack UAV.

      5 hours of work
      10 km ceiling
      720 km / h speed

      They have their own development and release center, where they collect small change under license.


      They were also going (or are still going to) - to build this UAV with Batka together in a series.

      It seems to me that you wrote it, just to "write" something ...
      What are your drones for the Turkmen?
      Do we have attack drones?

      Yak-130 - TCB only.
      Versions in the format of a light attack aircraft - only on paper and mock-ups and news.
      There is not a single flying light attack aircraft based on the Yak-130 and probably will not be for a long time.

      2011 .
      After the transfer of production to Irkut in 2011, the company decided to create a light attack aircraft with a radar (Bars-130) and high-precision weapons based on the Yak-130.
      2015
      Russia can convert the Yak-130 into a light attack aircraft, if foreign customers have such a desire.
      2019 year.
      PFAR "Bars-130" is being created for small-sized aircraft, possibly Yak-130. those. its development and production should be paid for by the future buyer - his Air Force - it is not needed.
      2020 year.
      The SOLT-25 surveillance and sighting system (optical, laser thermal imaging system), adapted for the Yak-130 combat trainer, was demonstrated. similar to Bars-130.


      And still...
      for 10 years, not a single living flying model, equipped as a light attack aircraft - no. and there is nothing to show potential customers.


      The SuperTucano is the perfect plane for a small country with deserts and mountains.

      Where in 99% of cases only partisan groups pose a threat.
      Just for dealing with such Super Tuccano - the best option!

          Here I began to have doubts about the ferrying of aircraft from Argentina to Turkmenistan. Who will drive them? Argentines or the Turkmens themselves?

            Definitely not Argentines, maybe Brazilians ... wink The Super Tucano is a Brazilian plane.

        Yak-130 - TCB only.

        Strategically, the Turkmen have a very small army (about 40 thousand people), scattered over a large territory, with potential threats from their main neighbors - Afghanistan, Uzbekistan (water resources) and Iran. There are no nuclear weapons. There is also no potential for sovereignty. They will not be able to stop a full-scale invasion from Afghanistan or Iran. They will not be able to resist the color revolution. The main guarantor of existence is the Russian Federation.
        Therefore, the purchase of subsonic airplanes, and even from the Brazilians, is the height of Turkmen wisdom.
        There is zero sense in hostilities, zero sense from strategic positions, zero sense for counter-guerrilla warfare against the Mujahideen or the IRGC.
        PS The drones are the same as for the Russian army. We have everything, but not everyone knows about it.

            Did you really write about Turkmenistan with its second Turkmenbashi?

            Yes. It is about the one in which the coronavirus was banned. And also about the one where there is a shortage of gasoline and people were forbidden to move from the villages to the city. Where are the problems with grain and sugar. But the main problem lies in the Russophobic Turkmenbashi and the government, with their orientation towards China, Turkey and other creators of "democratic" states.

      1. Our UAVs of this class do not yet exist.
      2. Someone in the region has already bought heavy UAVs from China
      3. Isn't it a replacement for a device like MI24? cheaper to maintain?
      4. RF here again has nothing to offer

    Turkmenistan, at least, is solvent. Why do weepy neighbors need planes? You will have to pay for them. Apparently, the delegation from the outskirts had enough money only for the excursion. They are looking for freebies everywhere. But she is not ..

    The Turkmen at one time were the main buyer of the Su-25 Scorpion from Georgia, apparently they needed it more as a training one, but with the capabilities of a light attack aircraft.

      They won't. This is a Trojan camel. Who will serve, where will the parts come from? The Turkmen Bashi forgot how Erdogan's friendship with Assad ended for Syria. Until Russia intervened, the Erdoganov family was exporting oil from the captured wells and pipelines, and was engaged in robbery. The family bought a whole fleet of tankers, selling oil at a low price, including through Ukraine and Israel.
