    Here his something better than Re-2006: Caproni Ca-183 bis with 5 Mg-151 20 mm guns, a 1475 HP DB-605 engine and a FIAT water-cooled auxiliary engine in the rear that boosted a supercharger for the DB-605 and a compressor for a motorjet in the tail with after-burner,for a maximum speed of 820 Km/h

    Thank you.

    Reggiane Re-2005R is not exactly a "never -were" because a prototype was really ready in 1943 in Genoa,it was a high performance interceptor with a DB-605 engine+Fiat a-20 auxiliary engine for two centrifugal compressors ( one for the DB-605, one for a motorjet exactly as ca-183 bis) for a maximum speed of 730 km/h with the same armament as the Reggiane-2005 or 760 km/h with only 1 Mg-151 and two 12.7 mm Breda Safat.It would have been an easy evolution from the Reggiane-2005, a cheap up-to-date high speed fighter that didn't need a very powerful engine as Daimler-Benz 603 whose supply from Germany were not sure 1in 1942-43 .

    The Ca-183 almost looks like a Bv-155.

    They both had to be high-altitude aircrafts, with a long wing and pressurized cockpit.I think this is more technically similar to Ca-183:

    I think it looks like a C.C.2 with an inline at the front.
