Ansaldo A.C.2

In 1924, Aeronautica Ansaldo SA acquired manufacturing rights in the Dewoitine D.I single-seat fighter, assembling one example as the A.C.1. This served as a basis for a modified version of the fighter with marginally smaller overall dimensions which entered production as the A.C.2 in 1925. Powered by a 300hp Hispano- Suiza HS 42-8 eight-cylinder water-cooled engine and carrying an armament of two synchronised 7.7mm Vickers guns, the A.C.2 was of metal construction and 112 examples were delivered to the Regia Aeronautica during 1925.
