Was the FIAT G.50 Freccia equipped with radios?

The subject line says it all. Also, if they did have radios, what year were they installed? I was wondering specifically about Freccias serving with the Corpo Aereo Italiano serving in Belgium.

Welcome to Stormo and thank you for your post. The G.50s (some) sent to the English Channel were equipped with ARC 1 receivers. Installation of the radio sets were done at the factory when built. Photos of the G.50s taken at Belgium all show the short radio mast behind the cockpit.
