LuckyBoy are you a jerk or just stupid. For sure you know little about the RA before 1943 nor for the many pilots that still fought along side the Germans after the Armistice.

For your information the Italians where 'better' pilots then the Germans. The kill:death ratio for the Italian pilots was considerably greater then that of the Germans.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif LuckyBoy, Italians were better cos Fw~190 pilots had to squeeze down into cockpit floor to hide from P~51 pilots, so the Fw pilots had poor cockpit view -- how many threads have we seen about how Fw~190 flew with "pilot head down" attitude?

CAPRONI-MORONI C2 "SCUD" EXPERIMENTAL FIGHTER
when the tide of war turned agaisnt it, Facist Italy turned with the tide. The C2, or "SCUD," was one direct result. The engineers of Aeronautico Piccolino Abagano Elari Quattori in Turin were charged with designing an aircrat of modern fighter type that could, should word come in mid-air of another change in Italian allegiance, instantly reverse course and become part of the now friendly force. Thus the unique two-engine configuratioin, central cockpit with sqivel seat and dual controls facing fore and aft. Time for the SCUD (mean "Scuderia con curso il travala," or "turncoat") to switch directions and sides was set a less than two minutes from a top speed of 265 mph by air force consultants. This performance criterion was never tested, much less met, since pilots refused to attempt it, except on the ground with an ambulance close by. One pilot did thake the sole SCUD prototype aloft, but once airborne decided to visit his mother in Salerno and wrecked the craft crash-landing on a nearby beach. The SCUD was painted godl by artisans formerly employed in upkeep of the Sistine Chapel. A remarkable feature of the plane, considering its fighter designation, was it total lack of armament. The designers successfully resisted all attempts to ruin its unbroken lines with ugly guns.

can I assume by the comments in this thread that Americans believe the Italians who rebelled against facism and joined the allied side did a bad thing and they would prefer it if they had kept fighting the US till the bitter end ?

Obviously there are some "ignorant" (for lack of a better word) comments in this trhead. Please don't make the situation worse by generalizing the opinions of a few to be shared by all Americans.

As an American, I've been waiting for the chance to fly Italian fighters over FB for a long time, and I know I'm not the only one.

Getting ready for when Italians will be fully part of teh FB. The Russian jokes (that nobody Whines about) are getting old now. If nobody made Italian jokes, that's cos there are no Italian planes in FB. We are just getting warmed up, if only Oleg would GET ON THE BALL

I wish we could make French jokes over teh FB http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Aeronautico,

In the words of the immortal Sgt Hulka......

"Lighten up Francis!" Pretty sure "Francis" in Stripes was an Italian in the movie, is why I thought of it. I'm sure LuckyBoy et al are just haven some fun. I for one would VERY much like to fly those beautifull Italian birds. (I'm talking about the planes now)!

G.50 , Cr.42 ????? !! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

btw, yes , the italian 5.series of fighters are wondefull planes . but a major drawback in the game would be that there is actual NO map to fly them !
the Re.2000 (as Hungarian Heja at Eastfront) and MC.200/202 would be "ok" , useable at the desert map and at easternfront.
but this Mc.205 , G.55 ... stuff - map missing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

so, i will wait wich planes maddox will realy bring in - if the 3.party developers have them ready ore not !

Whoah! Hold the phone boys! I'm just cuttin' up a bit here! You forget to consider that I've been to Italy and find the Italians to be one of the greatest peoples out there!

Many people think that because the Italians wouldn't fight so hard for Facism that they were cowards... nothing could be further from the truth! They risked more than their social standing by resisting madness! Whole towns were wiped out for resisting and I often wonder how we'd fair in the U.S. if faced with the same choices! Even today the people of Italy choose to fight organized crime with more on the line than how "it looks" to the world! So yes, we joke about the Italians surrendering too easily... but we seem to forget that they weren't really surrendering so much as they were resisting!

Think of me what you will, but always know that the Italians are beautifull people with heart and soul that goes deeper than life itself and what more can you ask for?!

This summer between Bologna and Ferrara have been discovered two MC 205 shoot down during the 1943-1944 years....and the dead pilots were again in the cockpits....

Cowards or not, the air war in Italy (43/44) has not been a joke.......

The MC 205 pilot:

On a western Ussian/Euro flight sim webboard, nobody gets beat up more than Russians, especially how Russians were not supposed to spank western people with Paddle made from a wood.

When Spitfire~1 and Mosquito are releaced, no more jokes about people who build airplanes made from a wood. Be Sure.

No, your not free to assume that on the ramblings of one fool.

Italy refused to go past a certain point with national behavior, Mussolini's own daughter resisted and led the drive against persecuting and deporting Italian Jews. With that she paid the ultimate price while visiting their so called allied friends soil. As a minimum it's a nation that retained their human dignity. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
