have you read a book called 'blood song' about South African PMC pilots flying a small turbo prop aircraft as a ground attack unit ? The
pilot actually rated it the best ever COIN aircraft he had ever used and that SAAF should get a squadron as they were easy to maintain, easy to fuel,
easy to fly and repairs were a doddle !
Its a great book and shows the highly valued service those brave souls did to African peace only to be let down by America and Britian in Rwanda.
