Here below the link to the forum of Aviazionecivile.it where you can find some beautiful pics of the third M-346 built (and the first Initial Production Aircraft) that flew some days ago with a stunning red livery.

Quoting N328KF (Reply 1): How much of this is still based upon the Yak-130? This seems like a crowded market...three new products in this category...Yak-130, Mako, and M-346...
I think that, due to the early breaking of the JV between Aermacchi and Yakovlev, the commonality with the Yak-130 is limited to the airframe, while the engines and the avionics are completely different.
Regarding the Mako well, it is still on the paper...
