PARIS 2013: Rivals Embraer and Beechcraft show off COIN aircraft

Both the Embraer A-29 Super Tucano and its arch-rival the Beechcraft AT-6 are both here at the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget, which is located in the greater Paris region of France. The military presence here is somewhat limited compared to years past due to the lousy budget environment. The US military barely has a presence here, but Russia has stepped up its game–the Sukhoi Su-35 flew a couple spectacular qualifying demos here yesterday. That jet is just awesome.
