Guatemala buys six counter-insurgency Embraer planes

Thursday, October 18, 2012


The EMB 314/ A-29 Super Tucano made by the Brazilian plane maker Embraer, has become the world’s leading counter-insurgency aircraft, securing customers across Latin America and into Africa and Asia.

Now Guatemala looks set to join Embraer’s customer roster with an order for 6 aircraft, a command center for surveillance data, and Argentinian air control radars.

The country’s fleet of A-37 Dragonfly jets retains just a couple of serviceable aircraft, and the EMB-314 has been the default replacement for most Latin American air forces.
