I do not think this one has a chance but its an interesting thought. I thought the OA-X was already decided to be a smaller piston based platform? OA-X is a very confusing competition.


Aero and IAI offer L-39NG and L-159 to USAF for OA-X competition:

www.aero.cz...



NATO member Czech Republic’s largest aircraft manufacturer with an unparalleled history of supplying thousands of military light jets around the world, AERO Vodochody AEROSPACE a.s., and world leader in defence systems technologies, Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd., today announce their interest in participating in the United States Air Force OA-X light attack program. AERO’s family of light jet aircraft, which include the L-159 and the L-39NG offer the USAF a range of capabilities unmatched by any other light jet manufacturer today. Both aircraft meet or exceed the USAF OA-X requirements for mission performance and system attributes. The L-159 is a proven robust platform, which has been successfully tested and operated in NATO joint operations, USAF Red Air exercises and real combat missions with coalition partners. The proven L-159 platform is enhanced with the integration of IAI's innovative and cutting-edge open architecture technologies. The L-39NG, the next generation of L-39, offers the USAF a unique balance of experience, operational performance, and cost efficiency available in a light jet.
