US Air Force chief Gen Norton Schwartz appeared this morning at the Brookings Institute to address the USAF's role in irregular warfare.
During the question and answer period, I asked Schwartz if the USAF needs a different aircraft for the irregular warfare mission, and also if he could specifically address the manned turboprop class, such as the Hawker Beechcraft AT-6 Texan II and the Embraer EMB-314 Super Tucano, as a candidate.
The video above is his response. Apologies in advance for the low volume.
