Description: The AMX A11 T is the training two Seat version version of the AMX Ghili.The AMX project was started when the AMI (Italian Air Force) was looking for a light strike fighter to replace the old G91R and bomber variants F104S and ASA in 1977. At that time, Italy was also participating in the Panavia programme for the Tornado with Germany and the United Kingdom, but the AMI also asked for another ground attack aircraft, one that would be cheaper and smaller compared to the Tornado and could be used alongside it. For this purpose, the AMX (Alenia-Macchi-Experimental) project was created, while Brazil was looking for a new light combat aircraft to replace Aermacchi’s MB326 in 1981. After some discussions and agreements between the two countries, Embraer (a Brazilian aircraft company) joined the project. The first goal of the project was to build a total of 6 prototypes and the initial plans called for a total of 187 aircraft for Italy and 100 for Brazil (a total of 132 aircraft for the Italian Air Force and 56 aircraft for the Brazilian Air Force). Unfortunately, the aircraft was lost after its fifth flight and the pilot, Manrio Quarantelli, died after some time from wounds sustained in the high-speed impact. After this problem, the manufacturer of the engine, the British Rolls-Roice, was forced to rebuild the compressor that was the cause of the previous incident. The project continued until 2005 with the new upgrade ACOL that made the aircraft capable of use gps bombs (GBU 32) and 55 units were converted to this variant in the Italian air force. The AMX A11 T was has the same sistems and capability of the AMX 11B

Why it should be in the game: I believe like the A7K, this coud be a very interesting and capable event aircraft

Would be great to see it as Italy needs an attack aircraft that is at a lower BR than the IDS +1

This is a +1 for me

The version in Italian service should go straight to the research tree, but the Brazilian version can serve as an event vehicle

Yes I agree that both AMX A11A and B should go to the line, but this one is the T, the two seat training one, that could be a potential premium or event

+1 needed in italian tech tree

Ah-uh, A-11A Ghibli & A-11B ACOL could add to tech tree but very different battle rating

well the only difference is the targeting pod some avionic and the GBU32, the br could be even the same

I guess A-11A Ghibli equipped CLDP targeting pod like Tornado IDS (1995), carry unguided bomb & rocket and Paveway II LGB

A-11B ACOL equipped 3rd generation targeting pod Rafael litening III better CLDP, carry infrared guided Air-to-Air Missile and Air-to-Ground armament same A-11T

Very good topic, I could do something in the future about the modernization of the AMX made by Embraer, known as the AMX A-1M.

As said before the only difference in weapons are the GBU32 that were added to’ the B. All other weapons are Just identical for Both version. I made tons on research on this aircraft

Alongside the A1A they can be Both good premiums

remembering that the Brazilian amx can have 3 versions, the prototype, the A-1 and the A-1M, so Italy will be well served

Yeah the whole AMX family will be a very good adddition to the game, let’s hope they will come, eventually
