Unlike many other Latino countries the FAU Dragonfly population's identities are rather straightforward. They received eight A-37B in 1976, and eight OA-37B in 1988/89. All the survivors serve Escuadrón Aéreo Nº 2 (Caza) at Durazno.

T-260 (F260EU)
Factory fresh aircraft are not often acquired by Uruguay, the delivery of thirteen F260EU (T-260 in FAU service) in 1999 marking the welcome exception. The Escuela Militar de Aeronáutica operates them; sadly one was lost in 2003.
