WWII Locomotives & War Series nº 29 - by Carlos Briz

(Class FS 650 locomotive - Italian State Railways)

Back to WWII and the desert we return, to bring you two more great dioramas.

The Macchi C.200 fighter was manouverable and able to stand it's own against the Hurricane, when well handled. 
However, it's two 12.7 machine guns and lack or armour gave it (and it's pilots...) a limited life span.

This diorama is also related to Lybia, I think, although the tag mentions "Finland 1942".

The German supplied the Stuka to the Italian airforce, to be used in North Africa and the Balkans, and one of the units that received it was the 97.º Gruppo Bombardamento a Tuffo.
