JAKARTA - Despite a crash that occurred on February 11, the Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU) remains eager to receive its final four Embraer A-29 Super Tucano light attack/tactical trainers. The TNI-AU purchased an initial batch of eight Super Tucanos in November 2010, followed by an order for a further eight units on August 6, 2012. The first four Super Tucanos arrived in Indonesia on September 1, 2012, and to date 12 total aircraft have been delivered.

The Super Tucanos were purchased as a replacement for the TNI-AU's existing fleet of OV-10 Broncos, which have been in service since 1976. Like the Broncos, the new Super Tucanos are used primarily in the counterinsurgency (COIN) and close-air reconnaissance and support roles.

Questions regarding the new Super Tucanos were raised after one crashed on February 11, but apparently the TNI-AU feels confident enough in their quality to continue with the procurement. Brazil's Embraer has stated that the final four units will arrive by the end of this month.
