MB 326K Impala
The Macchi MB-326 was developed during the 50s and it has been conceived as a two-seat trainer to equip the Italian Air Force. MB-326 was powered by an English Bristol Siddeley Viper non-afterburning turbojet engine with low air-intakes in the wing roots. Thanks to the effectiveness of the concept, It rapidly obtained a commercial success and it was sold in over ten Countries. Later on, a single-seat ground attack aircraft has been developed starting from the Italian trainer. The Macchi MB-326K, the armed version powered with an higher performance turbojet engine, was able to carry more than 1800 kg. of offensive weapons in its under-wing hardpoints including bombs, rocket launchers and guns in dedicated pods. The MB-326K was also produced under licence by the South African company Atlas Aircraft Corporation with the project name “Impala”.
