The Brazilian Army got a few ex-ANG Sherpas(last year, IIRC). I don't think any of the Sherpas are in ANG service anymore.

I believe that the original C-23A Sherpas were part of an offset deal (not sure for what) at a point where keeping jobs in Northern Ireland was a priority. The F100 engine was still showing its **** in service at the time, and the Sherpas helped manage the inventory by delivering serviceable engines in a hurry. What they weren't intended to do was battlefield transport.
