G.91

Notes: The G.91R reconnaissance and ground attack aircraft was adopted by Italy, Portugal, and Germany in the 1950s. The pilot has an ejection seat, and the aircraft is not capable of in-flight refueling. It is not an advanced aircraft, but is cheap to buy and maintain.

The G.91T is primarily a trainer variant, but also has a useful attack capability. It differs only in the extra seat, less machineguns, half the hardpoints, and less carrying ability.

The G.91Y (often known as the Yankee), on the other hand, is virtually a new aircraft. It replaced the single engine of earlier models with two engines, offering almost twice the thrust of the single-engined G.91R. The fuel capacity was also almost doubled. The machineguns were replaced by twin 30mm autocannons. The avionics suite, almost not present in the R model, was upgraded with Doppler navigation, a flight computer, radar altimeter, and a HUD. The Yankee can also be fitted with RATO bottles to decrease the takeoff run by half.

Twilight 2000 Notes: The G-91s were brought back into service to replace aircraft losses in the Twilight War.

The two wingtip hardpoints may only be used for drop tanks. The A model corresponds is a trainer/attack version; the C Model is upgraded in the area of the engine and avionics; and the K model is a dedicated light attack aircraft with greatly upgraded avionics and armament.
