A Fiat G.50bis of20 Gruppo, 51 Stormo based at Ursel, Belgium, in October 1940. Lack of range and poor armament severely restricted the type's participation in the Battle of Britain.
Mussolini led Italy into WW2 on 10th/11th June 1940. Italy posed a very real threat to British interests in the Mediterranean, but for reasons of propaganda (following RAF raids on the Caproni and Fiat factories on mainland Italy) Mussolini was particularly eager to join the assault on Britain itself. In July, he offered units of the Regia Aeronautica for service in the Battle of Britain, and was politely refused by Hitler and Goering. However, after repeated requests, Goering eventually agreed to the participation of a Corpo Aereo Italiano in mid-September.
