A general arrangement drawing of the C.202 Folgore
The sole C.201, adapted from the original C.200 design to take a 1,000-h.p Fiat engine and having a slimmer fuselage
The sole example of the C.200B which was developed by the Breda concern in 1942.
The C.200 Saetta is seen in its definitive production form with semi-enclosed cockpit.
A late production example (wing-mounted cannon) of improved Folgore development - the C.205V Veltro with a DB 605A engine of 1,250 h.p.
Derived from the M.41bis, the M.71 saw brief service as a catapult fighter aboard several Italian naval vessels.
The J 23 proved to possess too weak a structure and all examples of this type were rapidly withdrawn from service.
The J 24B was essentially a J 23 rebuilt as a biplane and fitted with a more powerful engine, the sole example soon being written off.
The single-seat fighter designed by Amalio Diaz was intended to participate in the 1919 Concurso de Aviones, but failed to qualify.
The Ducrot SLD did not enter flight test until October 1918, and was unsuccessful in obtaining a production order.
The G.8 was built in small numbers, but did not find favour with the Regia Aeronautica and was utilised for advanced training by the Gabardini school at Cameri.
The Gabardini G.8bis (on photo) differed from the G.8 essentially in having a rearranged engine cooling system and a longer-span lower wing.
