Quotes

Embraer Defense & Security president and chief executive officer Jackson Schneider said: "The Super Tucano is a robust and powerful turboprop aircraft capable of carrying out a wide range of missions and, in more than ten years of operations, it has confirmed to be a cost-effective air-power solution for nations around the world."
...January 2011 have made a tremendous difference to our forces in Afghanistan," said Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Philip M Breedlove. "They provided the 'eyes in the sky' for countless troops who have relied upon them for critical information supporting thousands of missions."
"Valiant Shield 2014 is a large joint military exercise, one of the largest anywhere in the world this year. It combines a series of vignettes to test our operational and tactical capabilities against high-end adversaries along with operations that allow us to asses and improve out interoperability between joint forces,” said Montgomery. “It also serves as (Task Force 70's) major two-year certification where we not only demonstrate our capabilities as a strike group, but also our ability as a task force to manage multiple carrier strike groups during complex operations. This is an extremely complex exercise for the George Washington and Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Groups."
Miller also writes, "to wage these two military campaigns in the War against the Islamic State, the president is going to have to accept that the plan to use air power in support of Iraqi army and Free Syrian Army rebel ground forces will require a significant number of embedded U S special forces soldiers. If we fail to embed U S forces to coordinate strikes, we will have a very difficult time achieving the ends that the president seeks. That is not to say we should go it alone. The president is right to seek the involvement of allied and regional powers."
