Jordan upgrades its Air tractors

(Jordan) While the US ruminates over its renowned A10 Close Air Support Aircraft (CAS) other countries have decided that they will go down a much cheaper route in which to support their frontline troops with Air Support.  Take Jordan for example, knowing it has more to fear from Muslims than it does the Jew next door, has invested in the impressive Air Tractor. Based on an Air spraying /fire fighting  aircraft(Air Tractor AT-802) which was designed from the onset to be as tough as old boots,

found new life as a Close Air Support Aircraft.

It appears the Jordan Air force is impressed with this flying tank, so much so, they have decided to upgrade its capabilities to allow it to drop PGMs.
