With fighter design improving it was becoming increasingly difficult for bombers to penetrate defenses to reach the target. Caproni decided the answer was to increase the power available and by the time this plane went out of production in 1921 it had 5 times the power of the Ca 1.
A total of 659 were built including three in the USA
2 by Standard and one by Fisher.
