CR.32 Freccia SUPER DECAL model kit FOR 5 VERSIONS - COLOR INSTRUCTION SHEET PILOT NOT INCLUDED Designed in the first part of the 1930s by the famous engineer Rosatelli, the Fiat CR 32 was powered by a 600cc 12-cylinder V engine CV which allowed it to reach 375 km/h. Among the most famous biplanes in the history of aviation, it was characterized by extraordinary maneuverability. It was also robust and well armed for the historical period thanks to the two 12.7 mm Breda-Safat machine guns. which fired through the propeller disc. The Fiat CR 32 had its baptism of fire with the Legionary Aviation, during the Spanish Civil War, and immediately prevailed over Soviet-made monoplane fighters such as the Polikarpov I-16 which equipped the republican air force units. Thanks to the extraordinary maneuverability and the training of the Italian pilots, the CR 32 also prevailed over aircraft with a more modern and current concept. Even the fast, for those years, Soviet-made bomber Tupolev SB-2, considered uninterceptable thanks to its speed, suffered numerous losses during aerial clashes with the "Chirri" of the Legionary Aviation.
