Nigerian Super Tucano package includes laser-guided weapons

Nigeria has requested Paveway II and Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS) laser-guidance
kits for the 12 EMB 314/A-29 Super Tucano turboprop aircraft it is planning to acquire.

The US Defence Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced on 3 August that the US State Department had approved the sale of the 12 aircraft for an estimated USD593 million, but more details were revealed in the arms sales notification published by the Federal Register on 28 August.

The requested package includes 100 GBU-12 and 100 GBU-58 Paveway II guidance kits for 500 lb- and 250 lb-class bombs respectively and 400 laser-guided rockets that include the APKWS, which is used to upgrade 70 mm rockets into guided weapons.
