When the Italian Air Force needed to replace its fleet of Fiat G.91 attack and reconnaissance aircraft as well as its RF-104G Starfighter reconnaissance aircraft in the late 1970s, Aeritalia and Aermacchi teamed up to offer a solution. When the design was accepted in 1980, the Brazilian Air Force sought to join the project so it could replace its own fleet of aging MB-326 aircraft. The resulting consortium became AMX International and this new single-seat attack and reconnaissance aircraft became the AMX.

The production AMX became the A-11 Ghibli in Italian Air Force service while the Brazilian AMX became the A-1. The key distinguishing difference between the two aircraft is the A-11 is armed with the M61 Vulcan cannon in the port side nose while the A-1 is armed with two 30mm cannons in the nose. The AMX can carry a wide array of air-to-ground ordnance on its five weapons stations as well as a pair of AIM-9L Sidewinders on the wingtip rails.
