I can find pictures of all the attack aircraft with time.

SM.93 was a dive/torpedo bomber. Not really an attack aircraft like the others.

Fiat CR.25 was put into limited production, about 12 iirc, had good performance and excellent reliability. Used as a VIP transport and against Blenheims out of Malta.

Caproni-Reggiane Ca.410,Macchi MC.203,Piaggio P.110,IMAM Ro.55 and CANT Z-510.

Fiat CR.44 by Santo Russo

It looks like it had the same Issota-Franchessi (sp) "Zeta" engine that the proposed Re.2004 was to have had. Anyone have a three-view of this one?

The speed estimate seems a little on the slow side.

Red Admiral,

Can you tell us a bit more about the SM.93
3-vieuw you presented us ?

The aircraft as it was built looks different , specilally in
the cockpit area.

Thanks in advance.

I think the differences arise because that is just an illustrative view focusing on armament options. Here is a more detailed 3-view.

Re-2004 with Isotta-Fraschini Zeta would look similar to this. Modified from a picture of Re-2005

I also attach the Macchi C.207, a refined version of the C.206 with a DB603 engine, larger wing and 4x20mm cannon in the wing.

Very nice info there, thanks. Does anyone know if, post-WW II, Macchi looked at Merlin-powered derivatives of the MC-202/205/et al. series comparable to what Fiat did with the G.59?

powered by 110 hp Cleget rotary engine driving coaxial rotors.
D'Ascanio (Italy) helicopter of 1930s :experimental light helicopter powered by
one 95 hp Fiat engine driving coaxial rotors.
Florine (Belgium) :experimental helicopter was built and flown in 1933,no more

Hi hesham!

It probably says something that I'm answering myself 6-1/2 years later. I don't know the exact provenance of the data used, but ItalianKits does produce a MC.205M conversion kit to make a Merlin-powered derivative of the MC.205V. I have to wonder where they got their data.
