I'm not sure how much of a difference the G.55 would have made once the US entered the war, even in larger numbers. If you read day-to-day accounts, prior to the US entry into the war the RA reported ...

I forgot to add:

Which engine type was less expensive and easier to produce the In-line or Radial?

Pros and cons to both designs, but given the limited size of the RA and its manufacturing base, ...

Great discussion, as always Vince!

This would have been a great question to put to Mario Castoldi. Anyway adding a Piaggio P.XII RC 35 into a C.200 airframe would have necessitated a redesign, a b ...

I know the date Nov 22, 1963 because my parents were married the next day. On Nov 22, 1963 the US lost its "innocence". Interesting one of JFKs Secret Service people recently went on the record (now l ...
