A US Air Force program to acquire “light attack” aircraft is introduced in a new publication from the Congressional Research Service.

“The OA-X light attack aircraft is a small, two-seat turboprop airplane designed for operation in relatively permissive environments.” It would give the Air Force “an ability to free up more sophisticated and expensive assets for other tasks.” See Air Force OA-X Light Attack Aircraft ProgramCRS In Focus, August 23, 2018.
