Oh raio, já por aqui também?
Ressuscitar o OV-10 Bronco é que era! Aquilo sim é uma aeronave COIN, STOL, de grande autonomia, aterra em LHD's, porta-aviões, etc, só vantagens. Citarhttps://www.wearethemighty.com/articles/how-the-tough-as-nails-ov-10-bronco-landed-on-a-carrier///www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QQuyql36aY
E é bimotor, logo mais adequado para operações no mar.

Ao ver as fotos do canopy de um PC-21 do EdA, colocada pelo camarada Goldfinger, ocorreu-me uma questão: os nossos Epsilon estão equipados com assentos ejectáveis?
The first prototype was modified into a testbed for the Turbomeca TP 319 Arrius turboprop engine, flying in this form on 9 November 1985. The testbed was then modified into a dedicated turboprop trainer, the TB 31 Oméga, powered by a 360 kW (483 shp) Arrius 1A2 and fitted with ejection seats, returning to flight on 30 April 1989. While it was offered for the United States Air Force/United States Navy Joint Primary Aircraft Training System competition to replace the Beechcraft T-34 Mentor and Cessna T-37 Tweet, it was rejected, with no sales resulting.
The machine is a further development of the TB 30 and differs from the previous model mainly through the turboprop engine and the two-part hood as well as two Martin-Baker ejection seats. The aircraft was designed as a low-wing aircraft with retractable nose wheel landing gear.
The prototype TB-30 Epsilon was fitted with a Turbomeca TP 319 Arrius engine as the TB-30TP. No production resulted so it was further modified as the TB-31 Omega (registered F-WOMG) with ejection seats under an enlarged one-piece canopy. In this form it was offered to the USAF but lost out to the Raytheon Texan II. F-WOMG has been preserved at Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées airport.
