France offers to Bolivia TB 30 Epsilon light military trainer aircraft

France has offered  to the government of Bolivia the proposal to supply training aircraft Socata TB 30 Epsilon and vessels for the Navy, among other military equipment. That was reported by www.infodefensa.com.

“We have a contract to provide military radars, it will give Bolivia sovereignty in the air and security”, and it is expected that the proposal for “the provision of 16 aircraft is accepted to train the staff of the Air Force and boats for the Bolivian Navy and many other things, “said the charge d’affaires of the French Embassy in Bolivia, Jean Pierre Pauly.

TB-30 Epsilon is a single-engine basic military trainer aircraft designed and developed by France-based EADS Socata (formerly known as Aerospatiale) for the French Air Force (FAF). It was derived from the TB-10 Tobago light aircraft. Approximately 174 Epsilons were produced between 1983 and 1989.
