The US has handed over four of eight Textron T-6C Texan II trainer aircraft to the Tunisian Air Force.

The remaining four aircraft will be delivered within the next 30 days.

The Tunisian Air Force took a step towards bolstering its capabilities by entering into an agreement in 2020.

Joining forces with Textron Aviation Defense and the US government, Tunisia committed to acquiring eight Textron T-6C Trainer Aircraft through a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract.

The next-generation training aircraft are set to play a crucial role in Tunisia's ambitious 2030 Aviation Modernisation Plan.

By incorporating the T-6C, the country aims to modernise its pilot training programmes, equipping future generations of Tunisian aviators with a more advanced capability.
