The Reggiane 2002 originated the Italian Air Force as a fighter-bomber, as a further development of the fighter RE 2000. This aircraft was equipped with an even more effective motor and increased armaments: two tools regarding wings had been added to both on nose. Furthermore the “Ariete”, as the RE 2002 had been called, had a great storage space capability, in a position to carry bombs as heavy as 500 kg. The squadrons built with this aircraft saw much of action contrary to the Allied fleet invading Sicily in 1943. After the Italian surrender in September of the same 12 months, the surviving aircrafts were used by the Luftwaffe, which produced its version with about 200 copies.
