Is the A-29 involved? It did beat the AT-6 in USAF competition, after all. 

Yes, I believe the A-29 will participate

I think that USAF actually prefers the A-29 over the AT-6, but they can't really say it out loud.

If I recall correctly, the purchase of a COIN aircraft for Afghanistan (& Lebanon) was a USAF-run project (Light Air Strike LAS), with a competitive tender. This resulted in the selection of the A-29: this process withstood the (inevitable) recompete after the protest by Beechcraft (AT-6 manufacturer).
