I'm assuming this footage, which shows the Fiat CR.32s at a disadvantage, was from a captured Japanese film. It looks like, from a quick Google search, there weren't many Fiat CR.32s in the Nationalist air Force, and those few available were used up in Nanjing in 1937.
Curious if anybody knows anything about the unedited source footage? I doubt very much it was shot for Battle of China.

That's not Fiat CR.32, that's Kawasaki Ki-10, posing as Chinese Fiats. Probably from "The Burning sky" or some other Japanese war movie.scotisle wrote:In Frank Capra's WHY WE FIGHT series, the 1944 Battle for China episode wasn't as well known. In one scene, attributed to the defense of Chungking, Nationalist Fiat CR.32 biplanes take on Nakajima Ki-27s at about the 37-minute mark.
