This pariticular aircraft was delivered in 1994 to join three other aircrafts that were being used in the COIN role. After one was shot down by a MANPAD in 1995 and another was lost due to an in flight explosion of ordinance, the rest were retired from active use. Further compounding their use was the difficulty getting spares and while the SLAF technical teams have worked wonders in keeping all kinds of aircraft flying, they considered these too tech prone. Their role was given to IAI KFirs in 1996.
