1:48 Aircraft-Savoia Marchetti SM.79-II

The S.M.79 was the most successful Italian multi-role medium bomber of World War II. Developed from a civil airliner, the first Sparvieros entered service with the Regia Aeronautica in late 1936, just in time to fly combat over Spain with the Aviacion Legionaria, the Italian contingent fighting in support of the Nationalists. Its performance drew favorable comments from both sides, leading to a succession of export orders. An effective torpedo bomber as well, the S.M.79 served the air forces of Brazil, Iraq, Yugoslavia, Romania, and Spain, some right up to the end of the war. The Romanians flew them on the Russian front from 1941 to 1944, an unprecedented record for an aircraft designed in the early 1930s. Though known as a tri-motor, several versions were built as twin-engined aircraft using a number of different powerplants, including Junkers Jumo 211D 1,220 hp inlines. Regardless of the version, its handling pleased most pilots and its ability to come home with extensive damage endeared it even more. Used throughout North Africa and the Mediterranean until the Italian surrender in September 1943, the Sparviero remained flying with both the Italian forces fighting alongside the Allies and the surviving pro-Nazi units.
