The new M-346 advanced jet trainer in Republic of Singapore Air Force (vintage) color scheme

Feb 26 2012 - 5 Comments

Although the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) stand at the recent Singapore Air Show showcased a scale model of the Alenia Aermacchi M-346 Master in an two-tone grey color scheme, the are rumors that the actual livery of the first M-346A could be similar to the orange and white one of the old Siai S211s.

Therefore, after publishing the M-346 in Heyl Ha’ Havir colors,  I’ve asked Al Clark to draw another digital mock-up of the Master advanced trainer in vintage RSAF colors (and squadron markings).

Beginning this year, the first of Singapore’s 12 M-346s will be delivered to the 150 Sqn at Cazaux, in France, where the RSAF’s Advanced Jet Training detachment is currently flying the A/TA-4SU Super Skyhawk.

    Excellent image! I’m not nitpicking but the sqn marking used here is that of 130 sqn currently operating PC-21s. :)

    Clark didn’t guess this color scheme and probably neither the IAF coat
