Ali e Colori #7 FIAT CR.32

This is the last issue of the Ali e Colori series. It is devoted to the FIAT CR.32, the backbone of the Regia Aeronautica Italiana in the 1930s. A highly effective combat aircraft, it was also sold in large numbers to foreign air forces and played a key role in the Axis victory in the Spanish Civil War. This new publication is the result of extensive research performed by Paolo Waldis, Marino De Bortoli and Angelo Brioschi. Included in this issue are over fifty accurate and attractive colour profiles. Multi-view line drawings are also included. This is a ‘must have’ publication that will be appreciated by modelers and historians alike, thanks to a great deal of information accompanying each profile. 32 pages, plastic-coated cover. Italian English text.

Ali e Colori #6 Caccia (Fighters) Reggiane

Reggaine fighters were amongst the best performing aircraft in the RA inventory and planes such as the Re.2005 could have swung the balance air power in Mediterranean if produced sufficient quantity. 21 pages.

Ali e Colori #5 Macchi C.202-205

The MC.205V was the next development aircraft in the series that had begun with the MC.200. The plane retained all the agility of the earlier aircraft but was equipped with a more powerful engine, the DB.605 manufactured under license by FIAT. About 262 aircraft were manufactured. 21 pages.

Ali e Colori #4 Macchi C.202

One of the best fighter aircraft of WWII, the MC.202 possessed a great rate of climb and straight line speed. The MC.202 was the equivalent of the Spitfire Mk.V and was completely superior to the Kittyhawk and Hurricanes in which it encountered in North Africa and elsewhere. The MC.202 was likely the best fighter in the Axis inventory in 1941-42 and was flown by many Regia Aeronautica aces including Teresio Martinoli and Franco Lucchini. 21 pages.

Ali e Colori #3 Fiat G.50

The Fiat G.50 was the first all metal monoplane fighter for the Regia Aeronuatica and was a typical transition aircraft. Its final design reflected the preference of RA pilots for unrestricted view. This requirement brought about the "hump" characteristic to the "Arrow" and to the Macchi C.200. Its service record was good, and the design would eventually lead to the Fiat G.55, one of the best fighters of WWII. In the hands of the Finns, the G.50 sported a 50-1 kill ratio against the Soviets. 21 pages.

Ali e Colori #2 Macchi MC.200

Undoubtedly the best fighter available in some quantity to the Regia Aeronautica at beginning of the war, the Macchi C.200 was a robust, extremely maneuverable and a reasonably fast monoplane. Designed by ing. Mario Castoldi, the winner of various Schneider Trophy contests, the C.200 was generally liked by its pilots and many Regia Aeronautica pilots would earn ace status flying this plane. The MC.200 would eventually be developed into the potent MC.202. 21 pages.

Ali e Colori #1 Fiat CR.42

This was the best biplane fighter of World War II. Highly maneuverable and fairly fast, the CR.42 was put into good effect during the early phases of the war. Used by the Regia Aeronautica only briefly as a frontline fighter until the Italian monoplane designs were ready, the CR.42 acquitted itself well and soldiered on through the rest of the war as a ground attack aircraft and night fighter. The CR.42 was also sold in fairly large numbers to Belgium, Hungary and Sweden and was used by the Luftwaffe who resumed production of this aircraft well into 1944. 21 pages.
