Ansaldo A.300-6

Remarks by Carlo Soliani: "Two seater reconnaissance aircraft used by Regia Aeronautica during the 1920s and early 1930s. The version depicted (A.300/6) carrying two machine guns, was obtained by Gabardini modifying an existing batch of A.300/4 (50 airframes). Over 700 (including all versions) were built, users were Belgium, Italy, Poland and Spain.

In effect, after the forced closing of his Flying School (March 21, 1930) the Gabardini firm tried to survive with repairs and maintenance of military aeroplanes."
