Six A-29 Super Tucano jets to be deployed against terrorists and bandits have departed the United States of America for Nigeria.

Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, Nigeria Air Force Director of Information made the disclosure on Thursday.

The 6 aircraft will move through 5 countries including Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Spain and Algeria.

The fighter planes are expected to land in Nigeria towards the end of July 2021.

An official induction ceremony into the inventory of the NAF is being planned for August.

The A-29 Super Tucano deal between the US and Nigeria is the largest defence sale to an African country.

The armed turboprops will conduct strikes against Boko Haram, Islamic State West Africa Province and bandits in North-East and North-West regions.

Nigeria paid $462 million for twelve Tucanos and other weapons in 2018.

The payment covers Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) systems for six of them.

The aircraft have Paveway II guided bombs, laser-guided rockets, 12.7 mm ammunition, unguided bombs and infrared sensors.
