If they're going to put a sensor package on it, which it sounds like they are, then it sounds like a great option. It'd be somewhat self sustained that way, that is, not relying so much on other aircraft or ground elements to identify and paint targets. What we're basically talking about here is a smaller lighter faster version of what the ACs are doing now.
I'm interested in armaments.
The Tucano is a fabulous airplane.
