This project seems to have some point of contacts with the original draft for the Aeritalia (now Alenia Aeronautica) G 222 "Cervino", eventually evoluted into G222 first and C27 then.

The original G222 project foresee a VTOL cargo aircraft with two turboprops, squared fuselage section and vertical jet pods designed to provide logistic support to FIAT G95 V/STOL supersonic fighters.

When the G95 family vanished, the G222 lose its VTOL capability remaining a pure STOL cargo.

Plese see attached some drawings of Fiat G 55/4 VTOL and Fiat G 222 VTOL variants

Emh....sorry Justo, but this thread has to be renamed.
There is no Fiat G55/4 but G95/4 instead.

There were two versions of the G-222. One is that depicted, the other was a twin-boom.

Here. From Gabrielli's patents. First is the twin-boom version, second is the internal arrangement of the tractor prop and the lift engines.

Here it is the 1964 version, substantially a prelude to the actual G-222/C-27 family.

Three stages in the design of the G.222, from te initial design in 1963 (called "Cervino" (Deer)),
to the design from 1965 with eight R.B.162 lift engines.

the name comes from Monte Cervino (Matterhorn) and not from a little deer (cervo in italian) ;)
the Fiat G212 CP of 1949 was named Monterosa (another top mountain in italian alps)

freighter and transport aircraft.

i had a vivid picture of a strange G222 stuck in my mind since 1970
Yesterdqy a piece of an old magazine for children emerged from an old box
It was like finding a message from the past in a bottle on a shore
Sorry in the paperclip is not well preserved
