I think this is my first post in Modern, but is there any truth that the RAF is to buy some A/T-6 Texan II's. I heard up to 20. Anyone?? C6

Just last month I read a news article about that. I'll have to try and hunt it down since a quick online search didn't help. From what I understood at the time it wasn't RAF that would be acquiring the Texan II but the company/consortium that wins (won?) the training contract. EDIT: Never mind, the article that I saw was about the Royal Australian Air Force: Teams Form for Australia Trainer Contest. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Best regards,
