While going throu a fs2002 aircraft download site, i found a interesting model of a brazillian light weight fighter/strike aircraft, which the website called the EMBRAER TX - OP.

I've searched the internet, and haven't been able to find a EMBRAER project that matches this aircraft, so i want to know is this fs model based on a real aircraft project, or is it made up. If there is some substance to this model, does anyone have information, deminsions, models, drawings, three-veiws of this EMBRAER project.

Isn't this the AMX?

i don't think so, it doesn't look like a amx, and it says the aircraft was capable of mach 2

Seems pretty clear its a supersonic development of AMX, probably with afterburning Spey, and modified intakes.

That isn't a real design, it's just his own design that he based off of the AMX. He has a whole series of "Made up" planes that he modeled.

Folks,

Weren't they suppose to develop a carrier version of the AMX for the Brazilian Navy?

As a Brazilian reporter with 34 years acting as a defence specialist I can answer you. The TX-OP was a LIFT project conceived in 1986. It's performance was to be around Mach 1.2. A Fighter version, with stronger engines, could get Mach 1.6. In 1978 Embraer worked in a attack plane, the A-X, at the same AMX class. Brazilian Air Force preferred to get a participation at the Italian project. NO AMX carrier version was projected.

Cheers

Found this pic on another flightsim website, as the other links on here seem to come up on suspicious sites.
