It is part one, waiting on part two. But I understand the Army wanting it's own close support fixed wing aircraft. Capacity, speed and loiter time, from my son the soldier. The Air Force is heavy into the high speed, wizbang stuff.
Beech AT-6 Texan II is a good candidate as well as the Embraer/(Shorts) Super Tucano.
