President Luis Abinader delivered two Dulus TP-75 to the Dominican Air Force to reinforce the patrolling of the Haitian-Dominican border. The aircraft was assembled in the Dominican Republic and each cost US$325,000 or about RD$18 million. The aircraft will operate from the Barahona Air Force Base at the Maria Montez Airport.

The Dulus TP-75 is the experimental military version of the Tucano-R sports aircraft of the Italian company Flying Legend.

Great ! Why spend only a few thousand $ on Drones and have hardly any operating costs when you can spend hundreds of thousands or milions on real airplanes and pilots that can't even hover above the same spot. Al;so if you need to use a airplane for survailance, at least use a High wing (mounted on the upper fuselage) and not a Low wing: (mounted near or below the bottom of the fuselage) where the pilot doesn't see sh.. from his cockpit.

It's a heck of a lot cheaper than the Tucanos. Dual purpose possible.
