Alenia Aermacchi M-346 Master

Compatibility: Prepar3Dv4.4+ V5

Home page

The Alenia Aermacchi M-346 Master is a military twin-engine transonic trainer aircraft. Originally co-developed with Yakovlev as the Yak/AEM-130, the partnership was dissolved in 2000 and Alenia Aermacchi proceeded to separately develop the M-346 Master, while Yakolev continued work on the Yakovlev Yak-130. The first flight of the M-346 was performed in 2004. The type is currently operated by the air forces of Italy, Israel, Singapore, and Poland.

International Flight Traning School livery for the M-346
26 June 2020

It will be included in the upcoming v1.05 release.

Unknown to many, Leonardo and the Italian Air Force have established a flight school which is meant to provide advanced flight training for pilots that will operate advanced jet fighters. At its full potential, the school will have 22 M-346 and 40 instructors, and it is expected to graduate 70+ pilots per year (which may not seem much by american standards, but it is quite a lot in european terms) from 15 nations.

I hope the update will be released during the weekend, but...that will vastly depend on the weather!

The M-346 update is on short final
30 June 2020

and it is mostly a collection of small fixes and improvements - although, truth to be told, the list of reported bug is extremely short (kudos to the Beta testers).

Along with the bug fixes, and apart from a couple of new liveries (IFTS and RSV) and improvements to the sound package, the biggest change is the implementation of the Helmet Mounted Display.

Speaking of the HMD, it will be quite close to the real world one - and it is not as advanced as the one of the F-35.
It will be available in two fashions: if you are using Tacpack it will work properly and be collimated to the external world. It can be used to designate A/S targets and follow radar tracks.

However, it will be also be available as 2D overlay for non-Tacpack users (albeit with reduced functionalities).

M-346 version 1.05
01 July 2020

M-346 version 1.05 has been just uploaded and should be available soon at SimMarket.

It is not a big update - as there were not major bugs reported. The biggest change is probably the introduction of the HMD system. Also, the sound package has been revised (hopefully for the better) and it is now based on real-world samples (for cockpit views... the oustide views are a mix of real world samples and other sounds).

Full list of changes as follows:

Version 1.05 30/06/2020

- Fixed missing graphics from Italian Air Force livery
- Added Reparto Sperimentale di Volo livery

- Added International Flight Training School livery

- Fixed bug that caused landing lights to blink if left of at power down

- Fixed minor glitch in material reflection rendering of some warning lights
- Improved sound package (now based on real-world recordings)

- Improved metallic reflections on some details
- Added HMD (both as 2D panel and via Tacpack projection), see chapter in flight manual for further information.
