First M-346 for the Israeli Air Force

23
20 March 2014 of the Italian company Alenia Aermacchi (part of the Finmeccanica group) in Venegono Superior (Lombardy) held the rollout ceremony of the first M-346 Master training aircraft built for Israel (tail number "102"). In the Israeli Air Force M-346 aircraft will receive the name Lavi.


The contract for the supply of Israeli Air Force 30 jet training aircraft Alenia Aermacchi M-346 Master was signed by Finmeccanica in July 2012 of the year. The total amount of the agreement on the purchase of aircraft by Israel is about 1 billion dollars, including the supply of the M-346 aircraft themselves, engines, simulators, maintenance, spare parts and personnel training. Of this amount, Alenia Aermacchi, which is part of the Finmeccanica group of companies, which will supply the X-NUMX M-30 airplanes themselves, will cost approximately $ 346 million. The first M-600 aircraft must be delivered to Israel in the middle of the 346 year.

In the Israeli Air Force, M-346 will replace the highly trained training aircraft used up to now and the McDonnell Douglas TA-4H / J Skyhawk (Ayit) transitional aircraft in the 102 squadron at the Hazerim airbase (so maybe 102 "on the first rolled out Israeli M-346 is conditional and pointing to the squadron). Israel became the third and largest customer of the M-346 aircraft. Previously, these machines were ordered by the Italian Air Force (contracted six aircraft with an option for nine more; three aircraft have now been delivered under the designation T-346A) and Singapore (12 aircraft contracted; deliveries were started at the end of 2012 of the year and must be completed in spring 2014 of the year ). In February, 2014 entered into a contract for the purchase of eight M-346 aircraft from Poland.

      A) For some parameters it’s not cheaper.
      b) Israel concluded a package deal - Italy purchased UAVs for the same amount

      Because the glider is common. The Italians invested heavily, then the path paths fled

          Stop. Doesn't funding mean shared? That is, an investor somewhere on the side - an unnecessary whim?

      There would be no Italians - there was nothing to "whistle". In addition to direct participation in the development, they paid all the bills.

    It seems like there was a joint project with Italians. They are money, and the Yak, who was then aground, is a glider. The Italians got a glider and broke the contract. Now released under its own brand. The West ALWAYS cheat!

    The Italians at one time received documentation for the glider and made this airplane. Therefore, they are similar. Unfortunately, these are the consequences of lack of money and underfunding.

    Yes, God bless him, with this M-346 ...

    Better we will wait for IL-112 ..

    Rogozin gave two weeks to conclude a contract for the production of IL-112V
    Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin instructed the Ministry of Defense and IL OJSC to resolve price differences within two weeks that impede the conclusion of contracts for the development and serial production of the Il-112V light military transport aircraft.
    “The final decision on this machine has not been made. So far, the Ministry of Defense is not satisfied with the price that we set, and a few are not satisfied with the deadlines, ”said Viktor Livanov, general director and general designer of IL, OJSC, Arms of Russia reports.
    “The Ministry of Defense requires a reduction in price and experimental design work (ROC), and serial production. In the price of a serial aircraft, only 30% is an assembly plant, everything else is suppliers, suppliers, ”the head of the enterprise explained.
    “Now all the work (on the project Il-112V) is carried out at our expense. The final decision was made - we stopped on the TV7-117CM engine for this car, because any new engine requires additional money, ”added Livanov.
    At the same time, Rogozin in his microblog on Twitter said: “We will soon complete the design in digital form and launch the production of IL-112V in the military transport and passenger versions.”
    Following a meeting at the Ilyushin Design Bureau, Rogozin said that it was decided to speed up the development and launch of mass production of the Il-112V light military transport aircraft.

        Outwardly, yes. And why not be like him. The Italians paid for the development. At some point, Yak and the Italians fled. The latter have a lot of their own - from materials to engines. Outwardly, they can be arbitrarily similar. The filling is different

          Optics


          EW


          Radio intelligence and mapping


          And the booking on it is the same as on the Yak-130, because it is one and the same glider.

          This is a training aircraft. Which the IDF and do not plan to take as a combat training. Take as a training.

          "The tragic experience of using" Fugs "as attack aircraft and the high losses of" Skyhawks "in comparison with fighters led to the fact that ours completely swept aside non-fighters from combat use.

          Figuratively speaking, the Israelis will prefer 30 purely training aircraft + to extend the service life (overhaul) of several old fighters than 30 combat training aircraft for the same money. "

      M-346 - a modern Italian training aircraft (TCB). It was originally developed jointly by the Russian Design Bureau. A.S. Yakovleva and Italian L'Alenia Aermacchi. Due to disagreements with the Italian partner, the joint development at the final stage has stopped. Each of the companies received documentation for the basic version of the future aircraft (glider), after which they released their own versions of aircraft: Aermacchi built the M-346 TCB, and the Design Bureau named after Yakovleva - combat training aircraft Yak-130. L'Alenia Aermacchi retained distribution and marketing rights to the aircraft worldwide, with the exception of the CIS (including Russia)
