Tried to recreate the I Ae.28 Super calquin with this picture.

And i thought it was a good diea to upload it here since there is no dedicated thread to the I Ae.28 Super calquin.

Re: Re: Argentine F.M.A./DINFIA/FAdeA designations

I decided to do an updated version which is more accurate. The only thing i have no clue about are the gun placements. Cuz the small pic down in the corner shows several placements and i almost think there are 6 placements in total which might be the cause since its descender the IAe.30 has 6x 20 mm's? It might be glass too but i cant confirm that since i have literally no description of the plane except for Calquin with merlin engines.

I should make a dedicated thread about this plane its gettin a bit off topic.


The posts from the designations section were merged with this thread.
Posts about specific aircraft are more appropriate for this section.

Weren't these the Argentine equivalents to the Mosquito and Hornet? They also look visually similar too.

The Calquin and Super Calquin were designed by Argentine engineers, the I.Ae.30 Ñamcú by the Italian engineer Pallavecino

What I meant by that was whether they served a similar purpose to the Mosquito and Hornet.

Yes, but only the I.Ae. 24 entered in service with the Argentina Air Force (FAA), one Hundred Calquins were built by the FMA. The I.Ae.28 was only a project and it was replaced by the more advanced I.Ae.30 Ñamcú, but only one prototype of I.Ae.30 Ñamcú was built because the FAA and the FMA considered that was outdated at the time and they decided to fund only the I.Ae.33 Pulqui II
