Alenia/Aermacchi continue to produce their new M346 light fighter/trainer, albeit at a slow pace. Only a handful have been delivered so far to the Italian Air Force, whilst Singapore has received its first two of 12 ordered. The UAE had planned to place an order, for as many as 48, but has not firmed that up yet. Picture below at a snowy Venegono in Northern Italy is a new-build M346 destined for Singapore.
