    It is indeed
    Great aircraft, a wild variety of weapons you can mount on this little beast and it can stay in air for long hours, just perfect to combat insurgents without having to deal with a huge cost

    It is not xD
    Just a solution to deal with the rats without having to pay thousands of dollars per flight xD

    I like the B-250 Bader, good plane and at least some development for aircraft industry in the Arab world. It also carries Arab munitions licensed from South Africa like Al-Tariq.

    What would best for Tunisia is an airplane like the Hawk 200. The Hawk 200 is a fighter variant of the Hawk trainer jet that was produced from 1990-2002. It can carry the AMRAAM, AIM-9, various JDAMs etc.

    well i guess they wanted a turbo prop platform for counter insurgency/terrorism missions and TN version has surveilance capability, combined with it's low fuel consuption its a great machine for the role.
    f-5 is best in it's class, compare it to l-39, l-159, alpha jet, jl-8 it's superior to all of them in speed, price, service cost per hour, maneuverability and in some case ammunition. upgrade them to something like brazilian one and you have a low cost multi role.

    No need. at least for now... We aren't preparing a war...
    Money better used to re-structure the Army first...giving solid base then build upon that strong foundation.

    A defense industry need us to be import restricted then/or having money and/or having an "enemy"
    and we've got none of it.

    The only thing we've got are extremely skillful "Minds"... But most of them are out of the country already working for the biggest Firms around...

    This should Not be an "EXCUSE" ! Import restrictions are the "Game Over"

    An old saying goes "Better be safe than sorry" which applies to Tunisia. A small defense industry manufacturing small arms, and light armored vehicles isn't hard to do and could help Tunisia achieve some form of self-sufficiency away from embargos.

    If only Humans learn from their History... we wouldn't be in this mess nowadays...
    TN can in the near future get assembly lines or small manufacturing lines of light equipment...but that's it... nothing important.

    As long as they don't feel corned/threatened... no much gonna change in the "Defense industry maiden".

    well the army is gaining more influence and making really notable change so maybe 10 to 15 years if the economy gets more better then it would be possible to get some new equipment and expand military industry but now as @HannibalBarca said nothing important.
