Do 217 image seems mirrored (see swastika). Engine air intake on starboard engine side makes this a Jumo engine, combination with 4-bladed prop should be Do 217 C-0.

Yes, Italian G.12. Here's the same plane in colour. See pattern of patches and the "8" on tail. I first thought the patches were part of the camouflage, but a closer look at the pattern etc. makes me believe these are repaired enemy hits. What do others think?

PS. why are we identifying axis aircraft in the Luftwaffe section?

Do 217 C-0 was a limited series of eight preproduction aircraft, replaced by Do 217E-series. I doubt they were operationally used as bombers except from weapon tests related to developing/refining the E-series. One or two were reported to be used as recons but details are vague.

Thanks, Denniss.

Are you sure the engines are Junkers Jumo ? I have never seen this engine in this configuration....

Griel Do 217-317-417 book has an image of the same bird (??+NF) as Jumo-engined 217 C-0.
Engine construction and air intake are pretty obvious for Jumo but it's indeed strange to see 4-bladed prop. But not uncommon for prototype series - He 219 protos used 4 blades too.
