Pilatus PC-7

     Notes: This Swiss-built trainer was designed for basic training and the teaching of aerobatic maneuvers.  It is easy to fly and a very forgiving aircraft.  Many were sold in Africa, Latin America, and Europe.  Though not normally armed, they do have this capability.  It has no ejection seats and is not capable on in-flight refueling.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: These aircraft were often armed as COIN aircraft during the Twilight War.
