_________________________________

* Caproni Bergamascha was originally Cantieri Aeronautici Bergamaschi. CAB was bought in 1929 and became a full Caproni subsidiary in 1931. Earlier CAB designs were built by Breda, Airone, and Caproni-AV.I.S. (AVio Industrie Stabiensi).

** Cesare Pallavicino designed a large number of aircraft. For Breda, he designed the Ba.15, Ba.18 , Ba.19, Ba.27, Ba.33, and Ba.39. For CAB, he designed the AP.1, CP.3, PL.3, and PS.1. For Caproni Bergamascha, he designed the Ca.135, Ca.308/Ca.309, Ca.335, Ca.331, and Ca.355.

Pallavicino went on to design the Argentinian I.Aé.30 Ñamcu. Projects Pallavicino 1 and 2 were R-R Derwent V jet-engined derivatives of the Merlin-powered Ñamcu.

*** Caproni Taliedo-built aircraft received their own designations. Although a Pallavicino design for Caproni Bergamascha, the Ca.135 was built at the Taliedo factory in Milan. Hence, the production bomber received a 'Century' designation rather than remaining the Ca.300 .

Because the lists are short, I've grouped 400-, 600-, and 8000-Blocks together
_________________________

Caproni-Reggiane Ca.400-Block Designation List
 - Officine Meccaniche Italiane di Reggio Emilia (OMI Reggiane) *

Ca.400 - Piaggio P.32bis by Caproni-Reggiane, 1 built (crashed 25 Feb 1938)
 - 825hp Isotta-Fraschini Asso XI V12s (1937) or 1000hp Piaggio P.XI RC.40 radials
 -- 24 Ca.400/P.32bis ordered for RA, order then cancelled
Ca.401 - [Project] twin-engined recce-fighter, 1936 Caccia da combattimento bimotore  competition
 -- http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,12292.0.html

Ca.405 - Procellaria (Petrel), 1938 record attempt aircraft, 2 x 835hp I-F Asso XI RC.40
 - new fuselage on P.32bis wings for Istres-Damascus-Paris race, 2 built (MM.375/MM.376)
 -- aka Ca.405C
Ca.406 - [?]
Ca.407 - [?]
Ca.408 - [?] Typo for Ca.405 ?
Ca.409 - [?]
Ca.410 - [Project] twin-engined recce-bomber floatplane
Ca.411 .-  [?]
Ca.412 - 1937 light tourer prototype
http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,2026.msg177679.html#msg177679

* OMI Reggiane retained its own Re. designations but the 400-Block was also assigned.Most, if not all, Ca.4XX designs were the work of Giovanni Pegna formerly of Piaggio. Aircraft given Ca.4XX designations were usually refered to as Caproni-Reggiane or simply Caproni designs.

Questions:
 - Any designations for late '30s flyingboat airliner design(s) by Ing. Pegna?
 - Did 405 Savoia Marchetti SM.79 licence-built by Reggiane receive Ca.4XX numbers?
_________________

Caproni-Predappio Ca.600-Block Designation List
 - Aeronautica Predappio SpA (aka Caproni Aeronautica Predappio) *

Ca.600 - [ 2-seat trainer ?]
Ca.601 - [ 2-seat trainer ?]
Ca.602 - 1940 single-seat aerobatic biplane, 1 x 185hp Alfa Romeo 115, 1 prototype **
Ca.603 - Revised Ca.602 prototype, reduced size, redesigned tailplane, 1 conv. (MM.430)

Ca.605 - [Project] 1941 single-seat biplane, 1 x IF Beta RC 10
Ca.606 - [Project] 1941 2-seat biplane, 1 x IF Beta RC 10
Ca. ...- [?]

* Predappio refers to the factory location (in Emilia-Romagna) not a designer. The site was chosen by Caproni for political reasons (Predappio was the birthplace of Benito Mussolini).

** In competition with Breda Ba.92, Caproni Vizzola CV.3, Caproni Ca.214, CANSA FC.11, and IMAM Ro.71. Breda, Caproni-Predappio, and IMAM were each given contracts for two prototypes.

Questions:

 - Might the Predappio-produced Ca.163/Ca.164 account for missing Ca.600/Ca.601 numbers?
 - Did Predappio-built SM.81 (21229-21239) or Re.2001 (6547-6556) receive Ca.6XX numbers?

Caproni-Reggiane Ca.8000-Block Designation
 - Officine Meccaniche Italiane di Reggio Emilia (OMI Reggiane) *

Ca.8000 - [Project] wartime Transatlantic 4-engined flyingboat airliner design
 -- 1000 daytime passengers, 56 nighttime passengers

Excellent, thanks Maveric! Added.

BTW, just to confirm ... Ca. 17, Ca. 21, and Ca. 23 were all built aircraft not projects, right?
