The Italian engineer Aurelio Robotti was a pioneer in the field of missiles and space exploration. His interest in missile research began in 1941, during the war when he was serving in the aeronautical engineering corps. In 1943 he proposed a project for a missile, the "aviobomba", which could be fired from a sub-submarine and was to be powered by a rocket engine fuelled by 75% alcohol and gaseous oxygen to ensure a theoretical range of 50 km. His project was approved by the high military authorities.the construction of a prototype was decided to go on to serial production but everything was abandoned after the armistice.shortly afterwards Robotti was contacted by the Germans to continue his work in Germany but he refused.apart from the information quoted by -Giuseppe Ciampaglia in "La Propulsione a reazione in Italia dalli origini al 1943- the subject deserves further information.

Wonderful find! Are there any hints on more detailed data?
Hi,Dilandu.Unfortunately,not enough technical details than those stated in the book but there is a bibliographic note n°69 related to an article of Robotti - (1941-1961: Vinti anni di attività missilistica in "Missili", Ottobre 1961.)-,there might be some additional information in this article.

Thank you, I'll try to find out is there any digital versions of that magazine available.
