BERNHARD C.F. KLEIN COLLECTION
No. 6555. Breda Ba 201 (MM451) Italian Air Force
06/18/2007. Remarks by Bernhard
Klein: "The Ba.201, powered by a Daimler-Benz DB 601, was a
clean low-wing monoplane with an inverted gull wing. It was highly
praised by test pilots, except for a dissappointing maximum speed.
Since all available Daimler-Benz DB 601 engines were to be used for
fighters, further development of the Ba 201 dive-bomber was abandoned.
