The United States will speed up the delivery of four reconnaissance aircraft to Jordan

The US sends X-NUMX AT-4 aircraft to Jordan, converted for reconnaissance, reports TASS Fox News post.


AT-802U

"The US Air Force forced the delivery of these planes at the request of Amman, who needs help in countering the threat," coming from the IG faction on the border with Iraq and Syria, the report said.

“These four aircraft are urgently required to eliminate the lack of combat power, which with a high degree of probability will lead to combat losses,” the TV channel quotes the justification of the order of the US Air Force at its disposal. “The Kingdom of Jordan is faced with a myriad of threats that require trained personnel from the US Central Command (Armed Forces) to assist in anti-terrorist operations.”

According to the channel's assessment, “the document points to the possibility of also sending American troops to Jordan”.

According to Fox News, the AT-802 company Air Tractor, "designed these aircraft so that they can be easily upgraded and equipped with the most modern intelligence equipment." Each year, the company builds up to two hundred such aircraft, said the channel.

          This is plagiarism, it is very similar to the Il-Xnumx but probably without armor.

        Sooo even useful for their defense industry. One problem is that transport companies will not get any benefit, the LDP is too close, you do not need to take it far, and they can crawl under your own power. In general, the idea is very. It is necessary to develop it.

      This model of the aircraft is used in the states as an agricultural one, a glider tugboat ... in short, a corncracker. It was also issued in Poland under the Dromader brand, if my memory serves me well ... In short, God forbid, we don’t need it ..

      But to be fair, in our 90s at the Smolensk Aircraft Plant, an attack aircraft was developed and even built based on a sports model (one of the options for the Yak-18). It was intended for border guards.

      Dear, wait a bit about this plane. Let's figure it out. This plane has been used for a very long time as a light attack aircraft and sprayer with a herbicide of coca fields in South America. It is very economical and it’s natural that against such an army as Russian submarine cars are toys.
      But against gangs of formations, partisans, minor conflicts, and so on. the very thing.
      I have long wanted to express seditious thought. But I won’t hold back. But is it not time for the Russian army to acquire “clear skies” airplanes such as for example the AS-130 Spektr at the Hercules base.
      no, in no case I am not talking about the purchase of this aircraft. And I am talking about creating something similar.
      And we also need light attack aircraft and scouts with our open spaces! They are cheap both in operation and in their own cost.

      USA sends AT-4 aircraft converted to reconnaissance to Jordan 802

      Of course, it’s not a scout, but a special anti-guerrilla attack aircraft specially created on the basis of an agricultural aircraft, with sufficiently strong protection, powerful weapons and aimed navigational avionics.

    Wow, I didn’t know that they thought of making an intelligence out of an agricultural plane. A suitable platform is a flying tank. And flies like an iron. A tank for chemistry in the nose is now used for fuel? Original.

    A pilot in such, I’m not afraid of the word, “airplane” is a potential kamikaze. If he hangs at 5000 meters and above, he can be calm.

      Air Tractor AT-802 in operation is much cheaper than a strike aircraft or helicopter, more versatile than UAVs, and its effectiveness in combating partisans is high because it has a long flight time, and a modern ECO (under the fuselage) provides good visibility and guidance from altitudes of more than 4 km. PSA Paveway will defeat most targets.

    Corncob? But look from the other side - simplicity, unpretentiousness, the ability to land and take off from an unprepared site. The main value is optoelectronics on the suspension.
    Our Yak152 such a suspension, ah lyalka would be.
