Piaggio P.2

Genoese industrialist and politician Rinaldo Piaggio started aircraft manufacture at his Finale Ligure factory during World War I, building Caproni bombers, and F.B.A. and Macchi flying-boats under licence. The Piaggio P.2 was the first original design for the company by Giovanni Pegna. Constructed at the Sestri Ponente (Genoa) works in 1923, it was a cantilever low-wing monoplane single-seat fighter with a semi-mono-coque fuselage and fixed, divided landing gear. Twin radiators for the 224kW Hispano-Suiza engine were mounted on the fuselage sides just forward of the pilot's open cockpit, and armament comprised twin synchronised Vickers 7.62mm machine-guns. The P.2 spanned 10.50m.
