  1. At the end of 1959, a new aircraft appeared in the sky of Algeria to replace the good old T-6 out of breath: the T-28 Fennec. Originally, two versions existed in the United States: the T-28 of the US Air Force with a light airframe, an 800 hp engine and a two-bladed propeller, and the T-28 of the US Navy, with a reinforced airframe, a landing stock, a 1,450 hp engine and a three-bladed propeller. The Fennec was born from a batch of one hundred and fifty light cells purchased by France, equipped with a large 1,450 hp engine, a three-bladed propeller and a tricycle train. The cabin was two-seater in tandem and designed like that of an American jet (F-80 Shooting Star), with an electrically sliding canopy. The visibility down and forward was remarkable, but as it was faster than the T-6, its speed affected the performance of visual observation. This marriage of a light cell and a large engine left a sufficient margin of power to weigh down the plane. Two side armor plates were mounted to protect the pilot, as well as two tubs of two 12.7 mm machine guns supplied with 100 rounds per weapon. As this machine gun was ill-suited to the Army watering copiously by jumping on its tripod, it was also remarkably precise if we managed to fix it very rigidly. This was the case on the T-28, which became a formidable firing platform, with four powerful, precise and reliable machine guns. In addition, it was possible to load rockets or napalm cans. Like the T-6, the T-28 could carry an observer. The massive arrival of the T-28 Fennec, more powerful and more heavily armed than the T-6, led to the regrouping of the Light Support Aviation Squadrons (EALA) by two, at the end of 1959. The squadrons became squadrons while keeping their acronym EALA, but receiving a new number.
