Title: CANT Z 1014 the BGR bomber for the regia aeronautica
Post by: ta183 on January 12, 2013, 03:28:08 PM
Hi!! i want to propose you  very interesting plane for il2 .the CANT Z 1014
this is its history and specifications .
Projected in 1938 for the public competition BGR ( Bombardiere a Grande Raggio=long range bomber)

Engine: Alfa Romeo 135 RC 18 cylinders 1400 HP ( a double Alfa Romeo 126, an italian variant of Bristol Pegasus).

Wing lenght : 36 mt
wing surface:135 sq. mts
dry weight , unloaded: 14.150 kg
maximum speed ( projected): 516 km/ h at 4100 mts ceiling.
Bomb load:from 1000 kg ( maximum range) to 3500 kg
maximum range : 4000 Km
armament: 6 12.7 mm Breda-safat machine guns ( data from Le Officine Aeronautiche CANT -Giancarlo Garello-Decio Zorini -Ufficio Storico Aeronautica Militare) or 6 20 mm Mg-151 guns ( data from Dimensione Cielo , ediz. Bizzarri, vol n. 6).

CZ 1014 was the winner of the public competition but it was rejected when Piaggio P.108 was offered with a 50 % discount.
In any place, in any time, in any gouvernment or ideology "pecunia non olet"="money doesn't stink".
P108 was not much worse , CZ 1014 would have sufered its same troubles linked to the same Piaggio or Alfa-Romeo 135 unreliable engines.
there are  not informations about the cockpit
i hope that i've respected the guide lines
regards,
