Crew:6
Powerplane: Four 1007kW (1350hp) Piaggio P.XII RC35 18-cylinder radial engines
Performance: Max speed 420km/h (261mph); Range 3520km (2190miles); service ceiling 8050m (26,410ft)
Dimensions: Wingspan 32.00m (105ft); Lenght 22.92m (75ft 2in); Height 5.18m (17ft)
Weight: 29,885kg (65,970Ib) loaded
Armament: Eight 12.7mm (0.50in) Breda-SAFAT machine guns: up to 3500kg (7700Ib) of bombs or three torpedoes.

"The Piaggio P.108 was used to attack Gibraltar on several occasions. Bruno Mussolini, son of Italian dictator, lost his life while flying one". The P.108 came to the war kinda late for Italy. For the last year of war for Italy the P.108 was used alot in the Mediterranean, and other missions.



Would make a good Italian bomber for later Italian Campaigns. Or the SM.79 Sparviero.

The Sparviero would be nice, but I think the P.108 would give the Italians a good heavy bomber.

VooWho,

Yes, it would give italians a heavy bomber but obviously it would get very little use in the MA. AH isn't all about MA but considering the relatively little service 108 had there are far more important bombers that should be atted before it considering both Ma and SEA needs.

Will I know that, im just saying when we get around to Italian Campaigns, or remodeling Italian aircraft. I know no one will fly it in the MA. But I don't play online so what do I know. All I know is H2H is the bomb. Everyplane gets a chance.

One thing that really sucks about this bird, is fact its defensive guns only carried 300 rounds a piece, for 25 seconds continuous fire. In comparison American buffs often carried 500rpg plus extra.

You'd have to have short bursts of very accurate aim Smiley

Did every B-17/B-24 fire every round they carried when on a mission?

many gunners would load extra ammo.  the ammo loads we get might be "accurate" but many crews overloaded the bombers with as much ammo as they could get away with.

Have they tried flying in Aces High below 15K and in a battle zone?

I do have a few new photos I have found since the last wish for this aircraft?

Don't feel like posting them right now though.  headscratch

One of the cockpit maybe?

This might be the transport version not really sure.
