Abstract

AFTER having been an even more enthusiastic supporter of the biplane for fighting purposes than have our own designers, the Fiat Company has produced a low‐wing all‐metal single‐seater fighter which may he adapted to a number of duties. This aeroplane has alternative gun equipment and a variety of bomb loads—incendiary bombs being to the fore in most cases. It is possible that the choices of a monoplane and of this armament are the result of lessons learned from the air fighting in the Spanish Civil War.
