At Dubai Airshow last week, Calidus, of the United Arab Emirates, launched the B-250. We interviewed Calidus’ Hamdan Abdulla Al Shkeli to find out more about the aircraft and his view on the Middle East market.

The B-250 is the only light attack aircraft designed specifically to carry out COIN (insurgency combat), CAS (close air support) and ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) and advanced training missions.
