MB-339 Aermacchi MOD, GemeinfreiThe Aermacchi MB-339 for DCS is a free of charge modification (MOD) developed by the Frecce Tricolori Virtuali in a private venture and has excellent external detail and flight model. The modification is under slow continuous development and is increasingly reproducing the systems of the real aircraft in detail. Information on obtaining and installing this free modification is available in the Chapter MB-339 MOD Installation.

At the Open Flight School, the MB-339 is used for ab-initio training (beginners) and as the primary trainer for the Professional Line training. The moderate system complexity and lower flight speed (compared to a modern multi-purpose fighter aircraft) in combination with the dual cockpit allow a smoother learning curve and therefore a better learning progression for both "Gamer" and "Enthusiast" students alike.
