The Alenia Aermacchi M-346 Master Comes to Microsoft Flight Simulator


Famed developer IndiaFoxtEcho brings new advanced military training aircraft to Microsoft Flight Simulator

Microsoft Flight Simulator continues to expand its in-simulator Marketplace with the introduction of the Alenia Aermacchi M-346 Master, a military twin-engine transonic trainer aircraft, that first flew in 2004. 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. The aircraft, featuring a tandem cockpit, is currently operated by the air forces of Italy, Israel, Singapore and Poland.

The M-346 Master contains detailed external and virtual cockpit models, with high resolution textures and PBR effects. There are numerous high detail texture sets, based on real aircraft, for the Italian Air Force, the Polish Air Force, the Singapore Air Force, the Israeli Air Force, IFTS, and the T-100 program. Users will enjoy the realistic HUD, MFD and UFCP aircraft interface and detailed procedures that are based on a real-world flight manual. Finally, the flight model with realistic performance and handling based on publicly available data brings the aircraft to life in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The M-346 Master has a distinctive appearance featuring a delta-shaped wing, a large, bulbous canopy, and a steeply swept vertical stabilizer. Powered by two Honeywell turbofan engines that deliver a total of 12,600 pounds of thrust, the Master boasts a top speed of 780 miles per hour (just past Mach 1), a climb rate of 22,000 feet per minute, and a range of 1,200 miles. The aircraft also features a modern digital flight control system similar to those in the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor and Eurofighter Typhoon.

One of the most advanced military training aircraft ever created, this transonic Aermacchi is a feast for pilots starving for a top performing aircraft. Not just fast and high flying, the M-346 Master proves itself to be nimble and intensely reactive to control inputs at any altitude. Its carefully engineered, state-of-the art design allows for incredibly precise high-end maneuvering, including multi-point rolls, loops, low-level inverted flight, and more. The Alenia Aermacchi M-346 allows aviators to not only push their performance boundaries, but also to set new ones never before imagined.
