Operated mainly as military flying-boats with the Regia Aeronautica, although commercial examples were produced, the initial S.62 and later S.62bis were powered by 372.6kW and 559kW Isotta-Fraschini Asso engines respectively. As a three-seat reconnaissance aircraft, it was armed with Lewis machine-guns in the nose cockpit and two more in a midships cockpit.

The Savoia-Marchetti SM.62 was an Italian single-engine maritime patrol flying boat produced from 1926. It served with the Regia Aeronautica and with a number of foreign users, and was licence-produced in Spain and the Soviet Union. Some of the Spanish aircraft were still in service during the Spanish Civil War. The single-engine, single-spar wing, wooden biplane aircraft was powered by a single Isotta-Fraschini Asso 500RI, 373 kW (500 hp) engine mounted between the upper and the lower wings, and drove a pusher propeller. It had a wingspan of 15.5 m (50.8 ft), a maximum takeoff weight of 3,000 kg (6,610 lb) including fuel, bombs and four crew, and entered production in 1926..
