Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 Sparviero


The Sparviero, or Sparrowhawk (the "hunchback" to pilots), first saw action in the Spanish Civil War and continued in service as Italy's principal bomber throughout the war. They were highly successful in the Mediterranean theater as torpedo bombers.

Cool stuff for SM79 lovers:
