One of the most highly antecipated new aircraft for MSFS has finally been released! After teasing his Aermacchi MB-339 for weeks, Dino Cattaneo from Indiafoxtecho has made it available today for your enjoyment. It’s his second release in a very short period of time, after launching the Long-EZ just a few days ago.

The Aermacchi MB-339 was developed during the 70’s for Italian Air Force, and it’s now coming to MSFS in two different versions: a Lite and a Pro. The Lite version, now released, is intended to be a relatively simple aircraft, with a highly detailed visual model based on the Frecce Tricolori variant, a very detailed cockpit and a flight model based on MSFS’s new technologies. The developers believe this version has “a good level of realism”, with some restrictions regarding the most extreme maneuvers and systems’s simulation being limited by MSFS default systems.

The Pro version, on the other hand, will be made up to “study level” standards, with complete system simulation and a very advanced flight model. It will be available at a later date.

The MB-339 is now available at SimMarket for 24.60€, and should also be available in MSFS Marketplace and other retailers soon.
