Mexican Air Force adds 6 new T-6C Texan II aircraft to fleet

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- The Mexican Air Force has completed its replacement of its aging fleet of Pilatus PC-7 aircraft by adding six new Beechcraft T-6C Texan II trainers.

The T-6C is designed to seat two crew members, and is used by the U.S. Navy to train officers for naval flight missions. The aircraft can also be equipped with .50-caliber bombs, guided missiles and rockets, and other weapons. However, no arms have been delivered or equipped to the aircraft.
