With United States cooperation, in 1997 Brazil negotiated a $70 million contract for purchase of twenty A-4KU and three TA-4KUs from Kuwait. These are operating from A-12 "São Paulo", former French Navy R99 "Foch". It was purchased from France in 1999.

The Kuwaiti Skyhawks were re-designated AF-1 and AF-1A.
