THE PUREST FORM

The Fiat G.55 Centauro represented the pinnacle of Italian figher plane design in World War II. Fielding two Breda-SAFAT machine guns and three MG 151/20 cannons, one of which was fired through the prop hub, the Centauro was fast, nimble and hard hitting. Evaluated by the Luftwaffe High Command against the FW-190 as well as the Bf-109, it achieved an evaluation rating of "excellent." As such, it was slated for production in Germany for service with the German Air Force. One officer went to far as to claim it the best figher in the Axis stable.

THE FINAL KILL

April 24, 1945. Oberfeldwebel Walter Loos of Stab. JG 301 claims aerial victories against a pair of Soviet Yak-9s over Berlin while flying the Focke-Wulf Ta-152 high altitude fighter. Designed by Kurt Tank, the creator of the legendary FW-190 series, the new high altitude fighter appeared very late in the war but boasted tremendous improvements in speed, flight capability and armament over previous Focke-Wulf aircraft. Its Jumo 213E engine made it capable of speeds approaching 472mph, and its one 30mm and two 20mm cannon gave it devastating firepower against the heaviest enemy bombers.

VELTRO!

June, 1944. Sergente Maggiore Luigi Gorrini 1st Gruppo, 1st Squadriglia ANR engages P-47 Thunderbolts over the Italian mainland. A combat veteran since 1939, Gorrini began his career flying the Fiat CR 42 scoring twice in that aircraft. He also went on to fly the Macchi MC 202, the Fiat G.55 and here the Macchi MC.205 Veltro. His war record shows a total of 19.5 aerial victories, most of them in Serie 5 fighters. Unquestionably one of the most beautiful and powerful Italian designs of the war, the Macchi Veltro was powered by the Fiat 1475 hp Fiat RA.1050 RC 58 Tifone engine, and carried 2 Breda-Safat 12.7mm machine guns as well as a pair of Mauser 151 20mm cannon.

HUNTING PARTY

Spring, 1944. The Fiat G 55 Centauro begins to defind the Italian skies against the Allied bombing offensive. Designed around Germany's DB605A engine, the Centauro was a beautiful airframe that was fast, manueverable and heavily armed with three Mauser 151/20 cannon and a pair of Breda/Safat 12.7mm machine guns. Shown above is Yellow 5 of Second Group, Second Squadron in Luftwaffe-inspired camoflage. Flying wing is another G 55 of 2 Gruppo Caccia in the overall dark green livery. Both aircraft operated out of Casina Vaga.

DAI BANANA!

June 28, 1943. Sergente Maggiore (Sgt. Major) Ennio Tarantola shoots down a P-40E Kittyhawk over the Isle of Sardinia for his eighth aerial victory. As a boy, Tarantola sold bananas from a pushcart, forever earning him the nickname that later adorned the cowling of his Macchi C.202 Folgore. "DAI BANANA!" translates to "COME ON BANANA!" and served to remind his adversaries whom they were flying against.

THE ARCHER Plate 01

Summer 1943. A Regianne Re 2005 of the 362nd Squadriglia, 22nd Gruppo,completes a firing pass on a B-17F of the 301st Bomb Group somewhere over the Italian countryside. Considered by many to be the most beautiful of the three "Serie 5" fighters Italy produced around the Daimler-Benz DB 605 engine, the "Sagittario, (Archer) was capable of holding its own ground in combat with either the US Mustang or the English Spitfire, the Re 2005 was a sleek and graceful design that excelled in the hands of a competent pilot, and although its handling was considered to be exquisite, it still mounted a hefty weapons load. With a pair of Breda-Safat 12.7mm machine guns in the upper cowling, one 20mm MG 151 cannon firing through the propellor hub, and two more Mauser 151s in the wings, the Sagittario would have been a serious threat to Allied fighters and bombers. However, because of production difficulties compounded by aerial bombing of the Regianne factories, only 30 or so of these fine aircraft were completed before Italy capitulated in September of 1943.

Considered by many to be the most beautiful ofthe three "Serie 5" fighters Italy produced, the "Sagittario", (Archer) was capable of holding its own in combat with either the US Mustang or the English Spitfire.

THE VETERAN

April 1944. Major Dominic (Don) S. Gentile, 336th Sqdn., Fourth Fighter Group, Eighth Air Force completes his final combat sortie. Serving with the famed Eagle Squadron since 1942, Gentile capped a long and distinguished career as a combat pilot with 23 air to air victories and 7 air to ground kills for 30 German aircraft destroyed. Due to the hazardous nature of attacking ground targets, particularly with aircraft powered by liquid-cooled engines, the Eighth's assessment board gave credit for such kills which made Gentile the 4th's leading ace at the time.
