actually, it looks more like a EMB-145 with some few extra screens and the fact that the yokes look like joysticks for FBW...take a look...

Your right, it does... but externally it looks a heck of a lot more like an A320 (or so methinks). Anywho, still lookin' for info on it.

Actually, its more of a 757 ripoff with winglets. Its even offered with Rolls-Royce engines. Its larger than any of the A32X family members.
