    Italian designers produced some of the finest fighters of the war with a fraction of the industrial resources that the traditional big powers had at their disposal. The Reggiane Re.2005 and Castoldi's late model Macchis were beautiful machines and could more than hold their own with the other late-war piston types.

    Chilean pilot Enrique Campos Alvarez (who later wrote the official History of Chilean Air Force, FACH) with an Italian pilot of Breda factory, before the war. Some chilean pilots was send to Italy to became instructors to teach later how to fly the Breda Ba.65, first Chilean plane with retractable landing gear




    Breda Ba.65 Grupo 4 de 'Ataque e Instruccion Avanzada', FACH (Chilean Air Force)
    Los Cerrillos airfield, Chile, 1938. All the Ba.65 used by Chile were powered by Piaggio P.XI-RC.40 engines. The two-seaters were Ba.65bis.

    Those German engines were really popular late in the war.

    Cool little known fact, the Macchi 200, 202 and 205 series had the left wing longer than the right to offset the roll from engine torque.

    The Italian aicraft were able to match the performance of any allied fighter and are comparable however their main undoing in early and mid war was the lack of cannon armament. They relied on light and medium MG which were not enough, this wasn't really sovled until the Macchi 205 V which had 2x20mm cannons installed in the wings.
