Proven Performance with Precision Power

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.

AT-6 Wolverine Brochure

  • State-of-the-Art Weapons Integration

    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.

  • Weapons Configurations

    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.

  • Precision and Airspeed

    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.

  • More Versatile

    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.

Proven, Comprehensive Training Systems

Using CAE USA as its ground-based training provider for the AT-6 light attack and armed reconnaissance aircraft gives customers the confidence of a modern, thoroughly effective training system for pilots, aircrew and maintenance technicians. The developed suite of training media and synthetic media training equipment includes everything required to take pilots step-by-step from ground school to flying colors in AT-6.

  • Computer-Based Training and Courseware

    Our digital training courseware allows for classroom or online instruction with each lesson building on the previous training. It also tracks each trainee’s progress for real-time evaluation.

  • Desktop Trainer

    The AT-6 desktop trainer performs entry-level training tasks and basic cockpit familiarization. It is equipped with a touch-screen cockpit instrument display, a single-channel LCD for out-of-the-window scenes as well as a joystick, rudder pedals and throttle quadrant. This device runs the same full-fidelity simulation software as high level training devices.

  • Unit Training Device

    A full-fidelity cockpit with functional panels and controls make the AT_6 unit training device ideal for learning basic flight maneuvers and emergency procedures. Whether configured with one or three flat panel displays, its flight controls are loaded actively and the cockpit features real aircraft grips to provide true aircraft feel. Instructors control flight scenarios via a remote instructor operation station.
