#1 It was a major challenge to get the Afghans to be able to be pilots but thankfully the A-29 is within their ability.

The first A-29s didn't get to Afghanistan until 2016 but the command thinks that by 2019 the Afghans will have 20 planes and the pilots to keep them active. The US probably supervises the mechanics.

I suppose the US also probably does most of the work converting recon info into targeting.

So at least these functions would likely continue for several years.
