Fiat G-59
« on: March 13, 2016, 03:03:36 PM »

Hello all,

I am sure many of you are familiar with the Fiat G-55 "Centauro". Well, this aircraft, the Fiat G-59, is essentially a G-55 with a Merlin engine. It would be interesting to see this development of the classic G-55 fighter in the game.

G.59[edit]

Fiat G.59
The production of these orders for G.55s for Italy and Argentina caused the available stocks of the Italian licence-built version of the DB 605 engine to run short. As there was still a demand for the aircraft, it was decided to convert the type to use the more readily available Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, with the first conversion flying in early 1948.[22] The conversion was successful, and the AMI decided to convert its G.55s to Merlin power, these re-entering service at the Lecce flying school in 1950 as the G.59-1A and G.59-1B (single- and two-seat versions).[23]

Syria placed an order for 30 similar aircraft, which by this time, were completely from new production as the stocks of G.55 components had been exhausted. Of these, 26 were single-seaters (designated G.59-2A) and the remaining 4 two-seaters (G.59-2B).[22] A single G.59-2A was acquired by Argentina for evaluation, but no further orders followed from the South American republic.

The final versions were the G.59-4A single-seater and G.59-4B two-seater, which were fitted with bubble canopies for improved visibility. 20 G.59-4As and ten G.59-4Bs were purchased by Italy.

The Fiat G.59 was a single seater fighter interceptor or two-seat trainer with conventional configuration, low-wing monoplane with all-metal construction. The propulsion system was made ??up to 12 cylinder inverted V liquid cooled engines. Packard V1650-7 Merlin with 1.490 HP, Rolls-Royce Merlin t.24-2 with 1.150 HP or 500-20 with 1.420 Hp, with propellers of different types.
The armament consisted of two wing-mounted 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns that became four for the G.59-2 (also called "four-guns"), but there was also the structural predisposition to install four 20mm Hispano-Suiza cannons (two per wing), or four 12.7 mm Colt-Browning machine guns.
The G.59-4A was the fighter version for export derivative of the training aircraft G.59-4B. It was a setup with updated instrumentation and 4 x 20mm Hispano-Suiza cannons. The G.61A was to be the final evolution setup with Packard V-1650-7 engine with 1700 hp.
