Now L&G, to brake a bit from the tension of the wait. I give you a bit of a catwalk on the upcoming (hopefully soon) Fiat Cr.42 Falco.

This plane will, hopefully, enable earlier campaigns for the Hungarians, and give a good match to the i-153 and G. Gladiator (for those Malta lovers).

for good reading: http://www.dalnet.se/~surfcity/falco.htm

Hungary used about 75, mainly on 1941 invasion of Russia (As figter and ground support).
Germany used more than 100 as fighters and night-fighters.
Others wer use by Sweeden and Italy. Although not mayorly employed on the E.front, quite extensively used ib the Mediterraneo and N. Africa. Also used (amazingly) on the Battle of britain (there is one in Hendon, UK).

Comments or info welcome.

WOW

That looks Fecking Brilliant

i was wondering about the Falco -
as you quite rightly said should be a good match for the i153 - was supposed to be a V. good biplane

Very nice work sir!

Edit: usually reponses to posts such as these will be Wow or nice etc - and it seems to be a standard response -but those really are excellent

Wow! cant wait to get my teeth into that, theres just something about early war aircraft that i love.
I'd like to throw all of the biplanes in the game into one big fight and see who comes out on top, The I153, the Fiat and of course teh Gladiator (is this gonna make it in? the finns used loads did'nt they?)

I reckon the I153p packs the most firepower with 2 x 20mm canons (good ammount of ammo with these as well), and was'nt the Fiat CR42 Falco the fastest production Biplane fighter that ever flew, and the Gladiator, well the name says it all really, hehe. Well i spose is also had an enclosed cockpit, could be handy on hte Russian Front or by Finland.

Oh yeah does anyone know if we will get the Ski version of the Gladiator or just the traditional wheels

Just a short note on the Cr42 in swedish service: Swedens airforce seemed to favor the Fiat before the Gladiator. The Cr42 remained in service until early 1945.

How soon sir?

I have been a fan of the Falco since I made a 1/72 scale model of it when I was in junior high school. ( A LONG time ago).

S!
