This would've been a very cool aircraft to fly. Powered by an 2, 445 shp Lycoming T55 turboprop, the Piper PA-48 Enforcer was to be a Close Air Support aircraft for low-intensity Counter Insurgency (COIN) operations, working with the A-10, and closely related mission-wise to the A-1 Skyraider. It had two 30mm gunpods, as well as 10 hardpoints for ordnance ranging from bombs to rockets to cluster munitions. It had self-sealing fuel tanks, ceramic armor plating, and wingtip fuel tanks. It had a top speed of 350 kts, a range of 920 miles, and a ceiling of 25,000'. The USAF tested the PA-48 during 1983-84 and decided not to buy the aircraft, presumably because it had a propeller and a tailwheel and wasn't considered "modern" enough to justify cost. Two PA-48 Enforcers were built. One crashed during the test program, and the other resides at the USAF Museum at Dayton, Ohio.
