Embraer has sold eight Super Tucano turboprops to the Indonesian air force. The aircraft will replace aging OV-10 Broncos in the light attack role, although Embraer notes that the Super Tucano can also perform surveillance and air-to-air interception. The value of the deal, which also includes ground support and an integrated logistics package, was not revealed. Deliveries will begin in 2012.

This is the first significant Super Tucano sale outside Latin America. Embraer previously sold 168 of the single-engine turboprops to Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic and Ecuador, most of which have been delivered. The fleet has now logged 100,000 hours.
