The Caproni Ca.3 was a dual fuselage, 3 engine, heavy bomber. There was a forward facing engine in each fuselage and a third pusher engine in the central nacelle. The strong airframe and powerful engines made the Caproni an effective bomber, capable of carrying up 1,760 lbs. of bombs.
The plane carried a crew of 4, with a nose gunner, two pilots, and a rear gunner, protected by a cage, standing on a platform above the rear engine. About 300 Ca.3s were built and were used throughout the war.
This plane carries markings typical of the Italian Air Force bomber squadrons.
