Thailand selects trainer and light attack aircraft

2nd September 2020 - 02:09 GMT | by Gordon Arthur in Christchurch


According to Thai media, the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) has selected the Textron Aviation T-6C Texan II as its new trainer aircraft, while its stablemate the AT-6 Wolverine will also be obtained as a light attack platform.

The RTAF let slip this news when presentation slides were shown at the air force’s annual symposium in relation to its fleet development. The presentation listed a dozen each of the T-6C and the ‘A-6’ (presumed to be the AT-6). The two aircraft share 85% commonality.

It is unclear if a contract has been signed, or whether the deal will be pursued
