a very comprihensive list, more nations than i thought found their aircraft over there even if only by ones and twos in some cases.........
Maintenance on all these types must have been a logistical nightmare!
Interesting site, though.
So Germany was using the Spanish Civil War as a testing ground for its equipment was it? Quite interesting I knew that but I didn't know that any or many familiar planes now had been around then. Adds some interest to the defeat of those who didn't want Franco in, in Spain.

Nice site.

As a matter of interest, AFAIK the He 112 V6 was the only plane ever to be fitted with the 20mm MG C/30L cannon. This was a huge, high-velocity beast, much more powerful than the MG 151/20, let alone the MG-FF. It was originally intended to arm the Bf 109, but it was decided that it was too heavy and slow-firing for aerial combat. But with AP ammo it would have punched through the tanks of the SCW era with no problem at all.
