And all 60 can be delivered by Q1?


Monday, July 28th 2008, 2:41am

It'll be tight but possible. Price will be higher than normal, and the planes won't be fully debugged, but if Persia wants them before Q1, TNCA will deliver.

So this design is not yet in production?


Monday, July 28th 2008, 3:34am

It is just starting to enter production. The prototypes where shown at the Hendon Air Show in May 1-10. The FAM has ordered 45 and Yugoslavia 12. The first production model would be available in October. The Persian order would be filled by 30 of the FAM planes and 30 new built ones, with the rest of the FAM order waiting until Q2/37.

Persia places an order for 30 standard aircraft (ex FAM) and 30 with 1" AC (new builds)

What sort of punch is the 25mm cannon giving? I seem to remember it was a fair sized weapon in which case an underwing mounting might not really be strong enough given the small size and weight of the aircraft.
