It was dropped by SM-84's from altitude , 2 each, but i am not sure if it was the torpedo version of SM 84.
No Italian torpedo bomber units used the Motobomba FFF. They were dropped by SIAI-Marchetti SM.82 Marsupiale and by SIAI-Marchetti SM.84 bombers, which belonged to bomber groups of the 32° Stormo.

Ok units .Thanks.

Btw there is a video of aSM 84 dropping 2 external stores which i believe could be Motobomba, it was one of those youtube videos about Regia Aeronautica.

I have no data about the torpedoes used by MAS boats, I only know that the annual amounts of torpedoes launched by all the units of the Regia Marina were:
- 1940: 546
- 1941: 1,185
- 1942: 1,600
- 1943: 350 (until 1st September).
