FSX SIAI Marchetti SM 1019 v1.0. The SIAI Marchetti SM1019 is a single-engine, high wing monoplane with tail-wheel type fixed landing gear. It was intended for battlefield surveillance and forward air control. It's based upon the Cessna O-1 Bird Dog but posseses an extensively modified airframe to meet latest operational requirements, redesigned tail surfaces and a turboprop in place of the O-1's piston engine. STOL performance makes it easy to operate from any airfield. This FS aircraft model represents two different examples, the first one when in use with the Italian Army and the second when repainted by a civil user after the dismission from the Italian Army inventory. Full package includes aircraft, textures and panel by Massimo Taccoli. FD files by Dennis Seeley. Gauges by Dennis Seeley and Massimo Taccoli.
