Description: Aermacchi, a Finmeccanica company, developed the M-346 advanced trainer on the basis of the Yakovlev Yak-130 light attack aircraft which was developed to meet the requirements of the Russian Air Force for a light attack/trainer to replace the L-39. Originally, both companies Yakovlev and Aermacchi were engaged on the Yak-130 development. The high-tech M-346 design focuses on advanced training capabilities for 4+/5th generation fighter aircraft but retaining a light attack capability equipped with western avionics, weapons and engines.

The Aermacchi M-346FT (Fighter Trainer) is a cost-effective multirole aircraft derived from the M-346 trainer and featuring the ability to pass very easily from training configuration to operational capability. The new aircraft incorporates an array of sensors, tactical data-link, targeting, protection and weapon systems to perform both tactical air support and air defense missions. The M-346FT was introduced by Leonardo-Finmeccanica at the Farnborough Air Show on July 11, 2016.
