Im bored, lets duiscuss this.

We have the FH Macchi 202 but we need more.

Here are my recommendations.

Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 Sparvero. sm79er_1.JPG

Breda Ba.65 recon/light bomber/ground attack aircraft ba651.JPG

Macchi MC.200 Saetta 01.jpg

The Italians also used Bf109G, Ju-87B, and Ju-88a's

I think the Sparvero looks a bit too big and heavy, so unless it was widely used as a paradrop-plane i think focus should be put on the other two. Perhaps the Breda, as the only reason for having planes is to have ground attacks, or prevent the enemy from performing them. Just don't give it the Val's wacky-physics: if you stall it, it will start tailsliding diagonally to the side (unrecoverable unless very high).

The SM.79 is comparable to the He-111 or Ju-88. It was the standard Italian medium bomber. It was also considered one of hte best torpedo bombers of WW2.

The only other Italian medium bomber used alot was the Fiat Br.20 Cicogna. FiatBR20Bis(1943)a.jpg

The Fiat CR.42 and G.50's would be nice. I suggested the Macchi MC.200 because it was common and it was the aircraft the Macchi Mc.202 Folgore was based on. Just add the radial engine nose in place of the DB engine.

It is my humble opinion that the biggest bombers widely used in FH should be medium bombers. Heavies should be reserved for certain maps.

Lets not forgett that thay need more armomr:D and in they got the elifant in 1944. Following the German defeat at Kursk, surviving Ferdinands were returned to Germany and retrofitted with a commander's cupola and a bow mounted MG 34 machine gun for protection. These vehicles were redesignated as "Elefants" for service in Italy during 1944. Once again, however, the Sd.Kfz. 184 Ferdinand/Elefant was not up to the task and suffered heavy losses.

... Elefants were used by the Germans in Italy. Not by the Italians that signed armistice 1943.

I dont think the RSI got Elefants either. IIRC the main problem in Italy was the Elefants notoriously weak and troubleprone drivetrain couldnt handle the hilly terrain.

D-Fens you said CR.32 but isnt that pic of a CR.42? This should be a Fiat CR.32 fiat%20cr-32.jpg
