Italeri Aircraft 1/72 Canadair CL415 Firefighting Amphibious Aircraft (Re-Issue) Kit
The Canadair is the most famous firefighting plane of the aviation history. It is based on the flying boat amphibious water bomber concept and it is an extremely effective tool to protect the environment against the fire damages. The Canadair CL-415 is the improved version of the previous CL-215. The most important improvements able to enhance the effectiveness in firefighting duties are the adoption of two Pratt & Whitney turboprop new engines able to provide 2,380 hp, the aerodynamic additions to the wings and empennage and the up to date avionic system. Thanks to its sturdy and robust central hull, it is able to load the water storage compartments in only 400 meters long run on water. The continuous improvements have also provided a boost in the range that permit to stay on the target for a longer period and to load and drop a higher quantity of water and retardant in order to be more and more effective on firefighting activities.
