AT-6 Light AttackCapable. Affordable. Sustainable. Interoperable.

Precise Air Power

In a world where flexibility is critical, Beechcraft Corporation delivers robust purpose-built solutions for irregular warfare. With a rich heritage of meeting military mission needs the Beechcraft Corporation has been delivering U.S. Department of Defense aircraft certified to military specifications for more than 50 years.

The Beechcraft AT-6 incorporates the very best of proven training methods and close air support capability to meet light attack and armed reconnaissance requirements. AT-6 capabilities cover a wide-mission spectrum that includes training, manned Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and light precision attack, while at the same time offering non-traditional capabilities for homeland defense and civil support missions.

Now upgraded with a more powerful 1600 Shaft Horsepower Pratt and Whitney PT6A-68D engine, the AT-6 is a structurally strengthened derivative of the proven Beechcraft T-6 trainer. Adding to the FAA approved primary flight avionics system by CMC Esterline, Lockheed Martin leveraged A-10C precision engagement modification capabilities in integrating the mission avionics of the AT-6. The result is a plug-and-play mission system architecture that combines state-of-the-art data link, combat communications capabilities, extensive variety of weapons delivery modes and precision weapons tailored
for the AT-6.
