Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) has filed a suit against the US government, hoping to reinstate a contract to supply light air support (LAS) aircraft for the US air force (USAF) on behalf of Afghanistan.
The lawsuit marks the latest twist in the USAF's attempt to purchase 20 LAS aircraft for the nascent Afghanistan air force. A previous contest was won by SNC, but the contract was cancelled after protests by competitor Hawker Beechcraft over paperwork errors. A new competition was declared, which SNC now wishes to halt.
