The original Viper 8 engine was capable of producing 7. This happened during a crucial phase of the ground war, when Angolan and Cuban troops were checked in an offensive against UNITA bases. The design was also to be powered by the British Armstrong Siddeley Viper turbojet engine, an efficient powerplant for the time. The flying school for Impalas was Flying Training School at Langebaanweg while operational squadrons were 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 and 8 Squadrons, with 85 Combat Flying School also having a small number of Impalas to supplement their Mirage trainers. Recognising the potential to better fulfil this role, several different companies independently chose to commence the development of purpose-built aircraft to serve as trainers; these included the French Fouga Magister , the American Cessna T Tweet , the British Jet Provost , and the Czechoslovakian Aero L In the aftermath of the devastating Second World War , Italy spend a number of years recuperating and reestablishing its economy; as such, the nation found itself unable to prioritise the necessary financing for the independent development of high-end combat aircraft that would be competitive with the upcoming generation of supersonic interceptors or bombers ; accordingly, Italian aviation company Aermacchi elected to instead focus its resources and development efforts upon the production of a line of light fighters and trainer aircraft. In stark contrast to the competing Fiat G. It is one of the most commercially successful aircraft of its type, being bought by more than 10 countries and produced under licence in Australia , Brazil and South Africa. Interest in the proposed MB led to the awarding development contract for three prototypes was awarded. In several encounters in with Mi-8 and Mi helicopters , they shot down a total of six. Amongst these changes was the elimination of the negative dihedral angle previously present on the horizontal tail surfaces and the substitution of a pair of wing-based airbrakes into one located at a ventral position. Although slower, it could operate from relatively primitive airfields and strike swiftly. The MB was one of the last Italian aircraft to hold the distinction of breaking multiple world records. What would become the MB was had its origins in a private venture project by Macchi; it was developed by a team headed by Italian aeronautical engineer Ermanno Bazzocchi , the company's technical director and chief engineer. October Aviation portal Italy portal. Wing fences were added mid-wing to increase the lift characteristics. Even so, the MB was supplemented by new Pilatus PC-9 trainers to reduce flying hours, and the last examples had been withdrawn by when they were replaced by the Hawk It was produced under license by Embraer with a further six for Togo and 10 for Paraguay. The record-breaking flights also provided publicity for the MB In particular, one pilot, Massimo Ralli, was responsible for the establishment of several different records while flying the type:. Helicopters were being used to supply the besieged troops and the SAAF cut off this link. The "A" variant had been intended to be operated as a light attack aircraft, armed with a pair of 7. However, the G. A number of MBs were deployed to bases along the Argentine coast immediately following the Argentine invasion, but soon returned to the squadron's base at Punta Indio. They had provisions for armament, but the engine was the Viper 11 Mk and not the Viper 20 Mk National flag carrier Alitalia placed an order for four trainer-configured aircraft, designated as the "D" version; these were expressly demilitarized and equipped with specialised instrumentation in order to train the airliner's pilots in preparation for the arrival of the new generation of jetliners that were being procured by the airliner. Aeronautica Militare. Seven examples of the MBK were also bought as light attack aircraft, with a further 15 assembled from kits, [17] while around 78 were license-produced and known as the Impala Mk II. Another pilot Riccardo Peracchi, who was employed by for AMI, frequently demonstrated the manoeuvrability and controllability of the aircraft at airshows for a number of years. Accordingly, the MB was readily capable of performing relatively slow speed take-off and landing while retaining an excellent rate of climb. According to aerospace publication Flight International , during the early s, the AMI's flight training programme was heavily influenced by the impending entry into service of the Lockheed FG Starfighter. During , the AMI gave its official approval of the project and issued a request for the production of a pair of prototypes later designated as MM. However, the MB did achieve a visible measure of success amongst many Third World countries, leading to the MB seeing considerable use as a front-line combat aircraft in a number of regional conflict. Impala Mk IIs were also opportunistically used as interceptors. The MB was outfitted with a tandem cockpit configuration, this arrangement had been chosen to result in a slimmer and more aerodynamically efficient fuselage in comparison to the more usual side-by-side arrangement. While none were originally built, a number of MBs were later referred to by the "A" designation, however, this was meant to indicated that these had been provisioned with a Marconi -built AD automatic direction finder ADF. Many operators soon switched to operating the MB in conjunction with a cheaper piston-engined type for basic training purposes. The Australian fleet, for example, had a life of type extension program in the s and were then re-winged in the early s after a fatigue-related crash. These high-profile successes functioned as objective statements of the capable performance of the MB and established the type as being one of the best aircraft amongst its contemporaries in its category. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Two Mis were shot down in the first encounter while escorting Mis. The ability to fly at higher altitudes was favourable for multiple purposes, including during the execution of aerobatic and navigational training, as well as improving fuel efficiency for long distance flights. The fuselage was divided into a forward, central, and rear section; the forward section contained the nose wheel and radio systems; the centre part, accommodated the cockpit, fuel tanks and the engine; and the rear section which comprised both the tail unit and jet pipe. During , initial representations by Bazzochi were made to the Italian Air Ministry. In practice, it was soon discovered that the simplicity and economy of scale of operating just one type for all training purposes was outweighed by the purchase and operating costs of a large all-jet training fleet. The service was considering options for the potential replacement of its existing trainer fleet, thus, upon the commissioning of a competition to select a suitable successor, the MB was an obvious early entrant. Neither the "A" and "C" models of the MB would ever be realized. On 10 December , the first prototype performed its maiden flight , flown by Macchi's chief test pilot Guido Carestiato. On 22 September , the first prototype was joined by the similarly-configured second prototype. The Viper was produced under licence by Italian aviation company Piaggio following an agreement established with its original manufacturer, the British engine firm Bristol Siddeley , during In a structural perspective, the MB was relatively straightforward. This section needs expansion. It was covered by a bubble canopy for excellent external visibility; it featured a windscreen anti-icing system powered by the engine compressor using bleed air. Over the course of the South African Border War , one was downed by an SA-7 ; another returned with an unexploded missile in its exhaust. Around the time of the programme's launch, the Italian Air Force took interest in the proposed aircraft. Over time, the MB found its primary role as a lead-in trainer to prepare pilots for transition to very high performance fighter aircraft. More than MBs were constructed between — The MB had been developed and ordered during a period in which "all-through" jet training was considered by many air forces to be the most cost-effective model for training of military pilots. Retrieved 7 August {/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} A total of 97 were ordered: 12 were delivered by Macchi, 18 assembled from kits in Australia, and another 67 were built by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation and Hawker Aircraft with the designation CA Although widely liked for its excellent handling and well-suited to its task, the service career of the MB was cut short because of structural fatigue problems. The aircraft had many advantages over expensive supersonic jets. While Peracchi displayed the MB's agility, Ralli concentrated on exploring its cutting-edge performance; meanwhile, early customers of the aircraft were typically reporting their satisfaction with the type to Maachi. In addition to being relatively easy to fly, a high degree of safety was also intentionally built into it, including adoption of new Martin-Baker -built ejection seats. The aircraft was important also for two developments: from the MB. The first flight took place on 22 August The measures to save costs led the MB to be frequently substituted for by propeller-driven models, however, the Macchi was often flexible enough to act as a medium trainer and light attack aircraft. It was intended to provide a single type of aircraft that could be used to perform both elementary and advanced training right through to a near combat-ready standard. The Viper 11 would be the same standard of engine used on subsequent production standard aircraft. The Aermacchi MB was a low-wing monoplane with an all-metal structure composed of light alloys. As well as being amongst the first customers to procure the aircraft, the AMI would be amongst the final customers of the later-built models of the MB as well. These prototypes were not intended to include several features, such as the ability to equip and deploy armaments or refinements such as cabin pressurization , however, Bazzocchi chose to introduce them regardless. After each attack they returned to low level to avoid interception by enemy MiGs. Eight MBB s were ordered by Tunisia in In the same year, Ghana ordered nine similar MBF s. Attacks on unsuspecting helicopters were carried out with only two guns per aircraft. You can help by adding to it. During the s, a number of countries begun to operate compact jet-powered trainer aircraft that possessed similar performance to frontline operational aircraft, often having been produced as two-seat adaptions of these aircraft. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Originally conceived as a two-seat trainer , there have also been single and two-seat light attack versions produced. The MB was powered by a single Rolls-Royce Viper non- afterburning turbojet engine, initial production aircraft were powered by the Viper 11 model, capable of generating up to 2, lb of thrust. Retrieved 3 June Aircraft of the South African Air Force. However, dual capability as trainer-attackers was better appreciated, as was the availability of six hard points and so dual-seat versions were far more common. The type had ultimately failed to impress other NATO nations, who only sparsely adopted it into their air forces. With license-building in Brazil, the MB. It was one of the first jet trainers to be developed with the aim of catering to both for ab initio and advanced instruction. London: Jane's, , First edition Retrieved: 2 January Retrieved: 22 January Retrieved: 9 November Retrieved: 22 February Aerial Visuals. On 15 December , having been suitably impressed, the Italian government placed an order for a batch of 15 pre-series examples on behalf of the AMI. The type was soon used to replace the aging North American T-6 Texan ; typically, within the space of hours, pilots would be as prepared to graduate as they would have been after receiving hours training in the older T As a training solution, the MB was considerably costlier but was met with enthusiasm amongst students; additionally, when used in combination with the Fiat G. Neither the MB. Shortly thereafter, the AMI issued its first order for the MB for an initial group of 50 production standard aircraft. In accordance with its intended primary use, the airframe was a robust and light all-metal structure, being relatively simple and cheap to construct and to maintain.
