Brazilian A-4 Skyhawks are still operational and in action. The link below brings an extensive report on the operation and modernization program of the Brazilian A-4s, as well as tons of photos. I recommend the visit, well-written report, with text rich in details and many detailed photos of the aircraft.

Just curious to know here; what is the cost of replacing A-4s with any of the current modern jets? Rafale and F/A-18 SH seem to be the obvious choice here, but what about underdogs like Sea Gripen? Brazil would stand to gain from extensive cooperation with the Swedes as you guys have already got an active Gripen program for your air force.

Getting 20 new Sea Gripens in E-variants would be a lot more attractive than spending money on a program that is long closed. Brazil will need another aircraft carrier in the coming 10-15 years to be able to project power across the Caribbean Sea and the South American coast.
