US and Afghan Air Force Joint Operations

09/20/2012: Members of the Afghan Air Force and U.S. Air Force land at Camp Shorabak, Helmand province, Afghanistan Sept. 12, 2012.

This kind of collaboration could be enhanced with C-27Js and Super Tucanos in the hands of the Afghans. 

For some unknown reason, it is OK to buy Russian helicopters for the Afghans but not American-Brazilian light combat planes.
