fiatrs14

On receiving a joint requirement from the air force and the navy, CMASA, a FIAT subsidiary, developed the RS.14 a floatplane for maritime reconnaissance. 152 examples were produced (including the prototypes), and were used with great success. The aircraft could also be converted for attack missions by fitting a canoe-shaped belly pod able to carry to 400 kg of bombs.
In the summer of 1943 a land-based version with retractable landing gear and 6 12,7 mm machine-guns and a 37 mm cannon was produced and designated A.S. 14.
