    Not the JRS 79B but the original with Gnome Rhone engines:

    What was the max. speed?
    What was the range?
    What was the crew?
    What was the weight empty?
    What was the armament?
    What was the bomb load?

    Thanks,

    Neil

    Hi :D :D :D

    I've just bought a polish publication TBU nr.199 about SM.79.There is mentioned that SM.79 was equipted with two Breda-SAFAT 21.7 mm machine guns.
