June 2008
Armada International;Jun/Jul2008, Vol. 32 Issue 3, p92
This article reports that Alenia presented the definitive version of its M-346 in the form of a pre-production aircraft. Externally, the most salient feature of the aircraft compared with the two prototypes is its new landing gear which is lighter than those sported by its predecessors, borrowed as they were from the AMX Italo-Brazilian combat aircraft. The Italian Air Force confirmed its intention to acquire 15 M-346s.
