Anyway, this is the story. After Aeronautica Militare chose the MB-339 design for an advanced trainer (the other was the more interesting MB-338), Bazzocchi started to think on a successor. In 1985 he drafted the AT-X2 (frst image), a canard delta with lateral intakes. Recognizing the potential of the aircraft Bazzocchi evolved in 1986 it in a advanced supersonic trainer (a new Talon) the AT-X2A, first with a middle wing, side intakes (second image), and then exploring a low wing, ventral intake configuration (a small EFA or EAP or the hell the project was named back then),. You see it in the third image. Finally, in 1987, tha configuration returned to the middle wing, lateral intakes, and was named ATX (echoing the AMX). All those project were canard configurations. This projects were frozen for lack of interest. Bazzocchi retired and in middle-to-late 1990's In late '80s Aermacchi entered an agreement with Dornier to develop an advanced trainer for European air forces, capable to merge in one aircraft the advanced phase and the pre-operational one (this is normally done on two seat versions of supersonic first line aircraft and introduce the pupil to supersonic flight etc. muinus the combat and specific first-line features).
This is the PTS-2000, an evolution of the ATX minus the canard and with a larger wing.
