In need of a cheap aircraft for the primary training role, the SLAF purchased twelve former Myanmar SF.260W in 1990. These aged aircraft were locally refurbished and put into service as primary trainers till 2001 when they were replaced by new build CJ-6s. The SLAF use of SF.260TPs in the COIN role helped select these as primary trainers in 1990.
