Hi everybody,

I saw that there are a couple of new vids on Youtube ; typing "Regia Aeronautica" I could see some very nice videos.

Today I watched this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QuwhFWSDdvU

There are some interesting actions of Macchi C.200 in Russia, and at the end of the video, there is a gun-camera action against a plane I really can't recognize.

What is it?

Also, look how those 2 Breda SAFAT 12,7mm destroyed something on the tail end of the plane. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

And it's interesting to note that those hideous pearl white tracers's "wakes" we have in the game are not visible in the movies (you can also see that in the strafing run of the movie called "Regia Aeronautica in Action 1940-41")... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

What plane is that?

Also, I found another interesting movie here, in high quality, but , apart from the national anthem, the other music is so ridicolous http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
(I can't even understand what it says, as it's not italian):

Another strafing action here, by C.202.

Hope you'll like them.

Cheers,
Rick

The funny thing is that the same footage is presented in a German newsreel as a kill by a German fighter ace:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGcXJbQFW9A

It is impossible to tell what type of aircraft scored that kill. It is probably a Bf-109 though.

Either the Italians presented German guncam footage as Italian - which is much more likely -, or the other way around.

The propagandistic purpose is evident in such wartime material for public consumption. On youtube one can find German newsreels from late 1944 and early 1945 in which guncam footage from 1943 is shown as if it was new stuff. In another case they present American guncam footage - probably from a downed P-47 - as German guncam footage. Civilians cannot usually tell one aircraft type from another.

I've also found on the internet American guncam footage paraded as Russian guncam footage. You have to be careful with this stuff.
