Lebanon to get Super Tucanos in 2018
The LAF's acquisition of the Super Tucanos, designed for light attack and aerial surveillance, is deemed appropriate given Lebanon's small size, mountainous terrain, and the fact that insurgents rather than conventional armies represent the main current threat there.
The United States has provided the LAF with military assistance over the past eight years. This includes two Cessna 208B Caravan aircraft, both of which have been modified into intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms.
