The Caproni Ca.3 was an Italian heavy bomber that saw extensive use against the Central Powers forces. It was used from 1916 until the end of war by Italy, United Kingdom, France and USA. One of the most effective bombers of any air force during WWI, the Ca.3 was a wooden three-engine biplane, armed with twin 6.5 mm or 7.7 mm machine guns and 1,760 lb of bombs.
The currently available models in the Wings of Glory range include one airplane with U.S. ensigns on the fuselage, piloted by Captain Federico Zappelloni together with U.S. Major Fiorello La Guardia (at the time also a congressman, and later elected as mayor of New York for three terms); and the camouflaged airplane flown by the Italian Captain Guido Taramelli.
