With some difficulty, out of 216 pages, I found the exact page - 157 - that is the source of the images in the previous entry:

Il superbombardiere della CRDA ...il CANT 1014

da considerare che questo e' un progetto del 1938 non di fine guerra come il P.130 della prima puntata .

4 alfa 135 RC 32 da 1410 cv l'uno , apertura alare di ben 36 metri ( dunque piu' di un B.17) , peso totale a pieno carico 25 tonnellate , 516 km/h di velocita' massima e salita a 4000 metri in soli 10 minuti . Carico bellico 2400 kg e armamenti difensivo , 6 postazioni difensive da 12.7 di cui una binata . Tangenza pratica di 8800 mt.

Il progetto non ando' in porto anche perche' quei motori furono un fallimento (come sempre ... )

The CRDA superbomber ... the CANT 1014

Consider that this is a project of 1938,  not of the end of the war like the [Piaggio] P.130 of the first [entry?] [page 154, it seems].

4 Alfa [Romeo] 135 RC 32 of 1410 hp each, wingspan of 36 meters (therefore more than a B.17), total weight at full load 25 tons, 516 km/h maximum speed and climb to 4000 meters in just 10 minutes. 2400 kg war load and defensive armament, 6 defensive posts of 12.7[mm] of which one double. Practical celing of 8800 meters.

The project was not realised because those engines were a failure (as always ... )
