First flying on the 24th February 1949, and developed from the earlier single engine S.M.101, the S.M.102 was originally powered by 2 x 500 h.p. Ranger SGV-770C-1B engines. After an unsuccessful sales tour of India and the Middle East the aircraft was adapted to an Italian Air Force requirement for a light transport. Twenty one were ordered and they flew until being retired in 1959.
