Seems odd that the military is buying 75 cropduster.

Crop dusters are highly maneuverable. Much more so than even an A-10. Don't know, but that may have something to do with it. I suspect the "dusting" mechanism will be removed.

The defoliation tactic worked well in Vietnam.

Lately the US has been fighting in deserts where such things aren't needed but that might change,

To spread low-altitude chemtrails.

IIRC, Erik Prince of Blackwater fame (in fact Blackwater founder) put together the original crop duster combat planes.

He took turbine powered crop duster planes to Austria, had a firm there arm them and used them in an operation in the Sudan. The govt didn't like it.

Erik Prince is Betsy DeVos's bother. Their Dad was a major supplier of injected mold plastic parts to GM. Betsy married well in addition to having a billionaire Dad.

AND - armament ain't cheap, much less the surveillance equipment.

That high altitude crop dusting of Covid didn't kill enough of you retirees. Won't you just die already so the gubermint doesn't have to pay for your care and they can tax away your inheritance. Geesh! Peons will never learn.

If you’ve ever seen a crop duster at work, you wouldn’t wonder why. They ought to hire some crop duster pilots. The one’s working around the house last month had to have been on meth.

Counter insurgency work. Insurgents don’t have state of the art anti aircraft defences and are usually in small groups in cover so a light maneuverable aircraft would be advantageous. Or the US military will crop dust Bill Gates’ farmland.

Hopefully these planes will do a good job at what they are designated for.

Probably cheaper, quieter, faster, simpler than helicopters.
