The Caproni Ca.2 or Ca.32 was a twin-boom biplane bomber. It was the first Caproni type produced in large numbers. Unlike the Caproni Ca.1, all three engines were replaced by 100hp Fiats. Starting in August 1915 the Ca.2 made its first bombing raids on Austria-Hungary and it served until 1917, transitioning gradually to night bombing as the war wound onward.
