The AT-802U brings firepower in close where it is needed and at the best speed for maximum effect. Capable of employing a large arsenal of weaponry, the aircraft has been built to employ dual .50 cal. GAU-19/A three-barrel Gatling guns, dual M260 7-tube rocket launchers, and 500 lb. Mk-82 bombs on nine wing and fuselage hard points (expandable to 15 hard points). The AT-802U is also configurable for more advanced systems depending on customer requirements. Laser guided ordnance, helmet mounted displays, fire control systems, survivability systems, and sensor payloads could all be incorporated into this robust aircraft.
With ground-to-air communication so vital in close air support missions, the AT-802U has been equipped with the Wulfsberg Flexcomm tactical modular multi-band airborne FM/AM/UHF radio communications system. This enables the aircrew to maintain radio communication with practically any radio system utilized by ground units.
Flying where others would not dare, the AT-802U protects aircrews with specially designed cockpit and engine armor, ballistic glass, and self-sealing fuel tanks. It also has mounting provisions for an optional AAR-47/ALE-47 survivability system.
The AT-802 is combat-proven in counter-drug operations in the USSOUTHCOM AOR by the U.S. Department of State. Despite taking more than 200 bullet strikes, AT-802 aircrews have maintained a 100% safety record with no loss of life or injury.
