Beechcraft AT-6 Wolverine


Brought to you by the same company that delivered the U.S. Air Force T-6A and U.S. Navy T-6B, the Beechcraft® AT-6 Wolverine is a multi-mission aircraft system designed to meet a wide variety of warfighter needs and accommodating 95 percent of the aircrew population. World-class Lockheed Martin A-10C mission computer with CMC Esterline glass cockpit and flight management systems command the AT-6 Wolverine. The AT-6 provides the most powerful allied-compatible ISR and targeting suite available with an L3 Wescam MX-15D multi-sensor suite, which provides color and IR cameras, laser designator, laser illuminator and laser rangefinder. The AT-6 Wolverine employs a broad range of weapons that no other light attack aircraft can match. It has demonstrated light attack capabilities and full compatibility with U.S. and NATO Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) systems. Capable of operating with a staggering array of weapons and external fuel carriage configurations, the AT-6 Wolverine gives the warfighter what they need when they need it, including the flexibility to tailor weapons configurations. In addition, the AT-6 Wolverine was the first fixed-wing aircraft to employ 2.75” laser-guided rockets successfully. The AT-6 Wolverine has a higher airspeed and Mach envelope for carriage and employment of external systems than other light attack aircraft. Its seven hardpoints allow the AT-6 Wolverine more than 13 general purpose and precision munitions to meet the demanding requirements of close air support and light attack missions. The AT-6 Wolverine can accommodate more than 66 standard load configurations as well as its non-standard asymmetric configurations, which provides the most versatile mission readiness in its class.
