Ambrosini SAI.207

Designed by Sergio Steffanuti, the Ambrosini SAI.207 was a fighter aircraft used by the Regia Aeronautica (Italian Royal Air Force) during World War II. It was a single-seat, low-winged monoplane built with a wooden structure. It was powered by one Isotta Franschini Delta, V12 engine that delivered only 750 hp. However, since it was very light, because of its wooden frame, it was a fast aircraft. The Italian firm Ambrosini produced only 14 SAI.207s; thus, it saw limited combat action during this armed conflict, carrying out attack missions against Allied bombers flying over Rome in 1943. It was in service with the 83rd Squadron, 18th Air Group of the Italian Royal Air Force.
