SIAI Marchetti 260Mx Warrior demonstrator I-JASQ

SIAI Marchetti SF 260W Warrior, in May 1972, was first flown as a trainer/tactical support version of the SF.260M the military version derived from civilian 260A. In my datas, first SF 260W prototype was I-JASV and here we have, on May 25, 1972, I-JASQ which probably is a 260Mx demonstrator ( x to mark the letters given to export versions as MC, MZ etc. according the buying country ) in camouflaged livery. Note the slim vertical section of the tip tank and the thin wing thickness, all two explaining what I told about fuel tanks capacity in the previous picture's caption of OO-HID.
