mm, maybe I have something, but I have to check. The late 20s aren't my favourite period.

Caproni Ca.52
From: Caproni bombers in World War I - Paul Miano - Macchione Editor

The British Government requested the Italian authorities a few copies of the bomber triplane Caproni Ca 42
in order to evaluate it.
Caproni built 6 airplane designated Ca.52. Differed from the Italian model for mt. Lewis paired in the front seat of the fuselage and a spaceship for bombs sizes suitable for the British.
Machines received the serial RNAS from N526 to N531 and were used briefly by No. 6 Squadron in Otranto (Italy) and then returned to Italy.

Hi

I am interrested in Breda but has also a question which has to do with Caproni.
Its concerning the Pensuti-Caproni, the little 1919 triplane.
Now I found (the same or a new plane) the Breda-Pensuti.
The Pensuti-Caproni was powered by a 3 cylinder Anzani and the Breda-Pensuti by a 6 cylinder Anzani radial
What can you tell me, what do you have??
My interrests are: history/drawings/dimensions (as much as possible)/pictures/colors, but also construction details (and pictures/drawings which gives these details) technical information etc.
Thank for your help
Jan

Here is a photo which I found somewhere. (If I remember correctly, I found it at one of Russian modelling forums, where somebody asked for identification...) Looks much similar to this Breda-Pensuti, but with some differences... Anybody knows what is it?

This one is the Ricci Triplane R6, now on show at the Museo della scienza e della tecnica in Milan;
its concept was very similar to the Pensuti's, and the first of the series flew in 1918, near Naples.
The Ricci brothers also designed some very interesting projects, likea gull-wing hidroplaneproject

I've opened a new thread about the Ricci Bros.
As regards the Pensuti triplanes, there wereat least 9 of them:
four versions of the first triplane and five of the second one, of which you can see a photo in this thread.

I think we have quite a few specific topics on Caproni types on this forum, so it's best to keep this here topic for unidentified designs I think. Perhaps a mod could rename this one as "Various Caproni aircraft" or "Unidentified Caproni designs", something like that?

Also I'd like to remind everyone that we have two other general topics on "early" Caproni aircraft which have plenty of pictures in them, if you seek to identify a certain type...
