Contains two metal CR.42 Falco bi-planes, two plastic stands. one decal sheet and one Unit card.
When the CR.42 Falco ('Falcon') biplane finished its days as a fighter, it found a new role as a ground-attack 'assault' aircraft. This rugged and reliable aircraft was easy to maintain and fly, allowing it to perform well in its new job.
It was in the North African theatre that the CR.42 is performed at its best. Experienced Italian pilots, the majority of them being veterans of the Spanish Civil War, employed the exceptional manoeuvrability of the CR.42 to great effect, enabling successful attacks against RAF Gladiators, Hurricanes and Spitfires.
The Italians learned about modern warfare the hard way in 1940. Now they are back, showing the world what the Italian soldier can do. Fighting under the famous ‘Desert Fox’, General Rommel, they form a crucial part of the Italian-German Panzer Army. Tough, determined, skilled, and aggressive veterans, the Italians broke through the British Gazala Line to save the trapped German Afrika Korps, held the line at El Alamein, and opened the way at Kasserine Pass, before holding up the American offensive at El Guettar. Fight or die for the new Roman Empire!
