At the beginning of 2017, due to a law of the Italian Government, the Corpo Forestale (Italian Forest Rangers) was merged with the Carabinieri (Italian Military Police).
The two forces have their own flight groups: the Carabinieri aircraft are painted blue and the Forestale Aircraft are painted green.
Following the reform, the Forestale aircraft were transferred to the Carabinieri and they have maintained the same green color by changing only the inscription in the fuselage and the serial number.
The former Forestale Aircraft have just been allowed to fly, for this reason they are rare.
