The Fiat G.95
Was a Concept/Project with international aspirations, as the Fiat G.91 for NATO, was expected to have a career not only in the Italian air force, in another forum, last year, I had the opportunity to develop these possibilities, visualized with the colors of the Luftwaffe in the Rhine or the USAF in the Vietnam theater.

I found these old cutaway, with interior sections of the G.95 version, and is clear the all sistem of the control in the Vtol flight was about clear before the Harrier....the only big problem, was the propulsion , very heavy and inefficient, six or eight engines for a single Vtol Strike/Fighter would have been a clear hedache for the logistic with high rate of failures.
The Harrier years later benefit of these first attemp and married the Amazing Rolls Royce Pegasus.

Very nice work. Thank you to call my attention to this project. As always a like more the one with camouflage  :)

Many thanks theponja for your kind comments.
Do you think that Argentina Air Force (or Navy) could buy the FIAT G-95/4 in late '60s?

G.95 v Sea Harrier in the Falklands. Would have been an interesting match up.

Not really, the SHAR, unlike the G.95 could use viffing to increase it's agility in combat,
although basing the G.95s on the Falklands themselves would have caused headaches
for the Task Force commanders...

From what I've read, the SHAR didn't use viffing throughout the whole campaign. And with it's
range considerably shorter, than that of the Dagger or A-4, changes for an encounter between
the SHAR and the G.95 would have been quite unlikely, I think. Ok, IF in Argentine service, maybe
some would have been based on the Malvinas ...
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...
