Yeah, s'good that, I honestly had no idea any Italian planes ever made it over the channel during those years. Truly Forgotten Battles.

They didn't have a very good time did they?

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

Yeah, I think we were talking about distinct airforces on the Axis side here, rather than the large array of nationalities flying for the RAF.

There were Dutch, Poles, Czechs, and even a few Americans, together with many more in the BoB - not forgeting the contribution from the Empire (as it was then).

ya know, a map of Holland would be very interesting when Oleg moves into the 1943 westfront.

I'm a crappy pilot, but one hell of a shot.

Yes, the Regia Aeronautica was committed to the BoB after it was essentially lost. Political move by Il Duce. Aircraft were totally unsuited for that enviorment. Only Fiats CR 42 and G 50s were committed in addition to long range bombers. The fighters did OK, but the bombers were useless.
