Highly maneuverable and fairly fast, the CR.42 was put into good effect during the early phases of the war. Used by the Regia Aeronautica only briefly as a frontline fighter until the Italian monoplane designs were ready, the CR.42 acquitted itself well and soldiered on through the rest of the war as a ground attack aircraft and night fighter. The CR.42 was also sold in fairly large numbers to Belgium, Hungary and Sweden and was used by the Luftwaffe who resumed production of this aircraft well into 1944. 48 pages. Italian-English Text.
