Title:  Short Tucano

The Short Tucano is a licence built version of the Embraer EMB-312 Tucano, modified to meet RAF requirements as a replacement for the Jet Provost jet training aircraft. Changes included using the Garrett TPE-331 engine in place of the PT6, a strengthened airframe for improved fatigue life, and a cockpit modelled on the BAe Hawk.

The first production model flew in 1986 and the type entered service in 1989. 130 were delivered to the RAF and a small number were exported to Kenya and Kuwait. The RAF aircraft were due to be replaced in 2019.
