Tunisia buys US training planes for “security challenges”


The Tunisian defense ministry said on July 18th had received four T-6C training aircraft from the United States, as part of cooperation to renew its fleet of training aircraft for the air force.

Last month, four Tunisian soldiers died after a military aircraft crashed into the sea, an accident that President Kais Saied attributed to an aging military fleet.

The US Ambassador in Tunisia, Joey R. Hood, said his country was committed to supporting the defense ministry’s efforts to enhance the air force’s ability to meet security challenges and humanitarian needs.
