Hawker Beechcraft T-6 Texas II primary trainers from the 33rd Flying Training Squadron are providing adversary support to the US Air Force's elite Weapons School--joining a long list of other types that have done so previously. The USAF Weapons School is where the service takes its best instructor pilots and molds them into weapons and tactics officers in their respective airframes. Those few aviators who graduate return to their parent unit to become their chief instructor pilot and tactical guru. The best of those graduates are eventually hand-picked to return to the school as instructor pilots. The addition of the relatively low performance turboprop T-6 to the onslaught of "Red Air" adversaries--which could include everything from F-15s, F-16s, and F/A-18s to F-22s replicating threats--broadens the scope of challenges the students have to deal with. That in turn will help the combat air forces when those students graduate to become Weapons officers.
