Cansa FC.20 was created by engineer Mosso. Originally conceived for terrestrial reconnaissance became subsequently a reconnaissance/attack aircraft. It was equipped with a quite powerful armament: a 37 mm gun in the nose, 3 machine-guns (2 on the wings and one in a dorsal turret) and 250 kg of bombs (tipically incendiary). It had a metallic structure and 2 engines FIAT A74 RC38 with 14 cylinders air cooled of 840 HP each that made it reach a speed of 420 kmh. It had a very long set-up so that the first aircraft was operative only in March 1943 followed by few others planes (8 or 10) before armistice arrived.
