Piaggio P-166DL-3/SEM

Thanks to Andrew Spring of www.p166.com! The seventh of the coming P-166 aircraft series. I'm going to built the whole family of these graceful twins. The Piaggio P-166A is a light small twin. An Exotic twin-engine prop that sold all over the world including America, UK, and Australia. The P-166DL3 is the last production version of a plane that first flew in 1957, now with turboprop engines, new avionics, increased fuel capacity, and completely new hydraulic and electric system. Its origin is traced Back to the Piaggio P-136, a light amphibian, which the P-166 keeps the wings, the engines and the tail-planes. The first P-166A flew in November 1957, and the DL3 is dated 1976. The APH version (Aero-PHotogrammetric) was originally built featuring a flat bottom with opening holes for cameras and other devices, planning to use the unit for logistic squads, that never formed. So the APH internal features were generally limited to Military high density transport, paratrooper transport, or Cargo. Units fitted with APH original projected photogrammetric capabilities are very rare. The SEM version can be easily identified by the big sonar under the nose, the FLIR under the left wing and a search light on the right wing. It' a maritime anti-smuggling patrol aircraft, and it's used by the Italian Cost guard and "Guardia Di Finanza (Finance Guard). The aircraft evolved into a new version, the P-166DP-1, with PT-6A engines. The DP-1 was available as a Mid-Life upgrade for the DL-3. This model is 740 Kbs with c.a. 21000 polygons in c.a.160 assemblies. Features Clickable Dynamic Photoreal VC with non-planar throttle quadrant. Detailed internals.
