Folks, thanks for your contributions, but please, it would be quite good, to stay with
the
original question and if straying OT, at least to stay with the appropriate section .
I think, I'll clean up a little bit merge this and maybe some other topics to a general
"Ambrosini pre-war types and projets" thread and move the Vindex to the existing thread
in
the post-war section.

S.A.I.404


But we know that,


SAI-404 was a bomber ?,and this aircraft may be,SAI-503 improved version
of SAI-403.

Was the SAI-404 meant to be for the Maritime Reconnaissance & Torpedo Bomber roles, perhaps?

Hi Grey;


the SAI-404 was a proposal in the Regia Aeronautica 1938 competition
for Long Range Bomber;

This stuff does get confusing. Skybolt said elsewhere that "The [SAI] 504 was an evolution of the 404a, which was an evolution ot the 404."
http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,7835.msg68757.html#msg68757

We can probably assume that by late 1942, SAI Ambrosini felt safe in 'recycling' the 404 designation from a failed 1938 proposal. So, the second SAI.404 concept was an enlarged variantion on the Dardo theme (with Bf 109 influence) powered by an Isotta-Fraschini Zeta.

But what was the SAI.404a? Further confusion springs from planned construction methods. Is it true that the Zeta-powered SAI.504 was to be of wooden construction? Does the Bf 109 influence mean that  the SAI.404 to have been of all-metal construction? Or are all of those construction material notes confusing matters with the SAI.503, a Zeta-powered, wooden outgrowth of the SAI.403?  :o

...coming back to the SS.1 problem, none really knows what it was. Someone think that the SS.1 (for Sergio Stefanutti 1) was the subject of the degree thesis of the young engineer; according to others, the SS.1 was a scale flying model of the SS.2.
