Embraer developed the EMB-312 Tucano to provide a modern, lower operating cost alternative to the aging fleet of T-37 trainers that operated in South America as well as similar aircraft abroad. The design was well received and was also produced for the RAF under license by Short Brothers. When Embraer tried to make a counter-insurgency (COIN) variant of the EMB-312, they didn't receive any interest from the Brazilian Air Force.

Brazil initiated the SIVAM program to counter illegal activities in the Amazon rain forest, and Embraer offered the EMB-314 which was powered by a PT6 with more than twice the power of the EMB-312, armed with two .50 caliber machine guns and an external payload of up to 3300 pounds. The aircraft features a glass cockpit, Kevlar armor, five external stations, and a wide range of air-to-air and air-to-surface weapons.
