The Presidency says six of the 12 super Tucano fighter aircraft earlier ordered by the Federal Government will arrive in the country by July 2021.

Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu announced on his Twitter handle today saying six of the twelve super Tucanos are on track to arrive in mid-July 2021 while the remaining six will arrive shortly after that.

According to him, “the super Tucano came off the production line in Jacksonville Florida, and are now being equipped and flight tested.

“Nigerian pilots and maintenance personnel are training on these planes. Currently, the construction is ongoing, which will house the aircraft.

“The air-ground-integration school is the training hub on targeting and minimization of civilian casualties.”

The Federal government had in February 2018 placed an order for 12 super Tucano aircraft at a cost of $496million.
