The Caproni Ca.46 was a variant of the Caproni Ca.44 in the line of Caproni Ca.5 biplane twin-boom bombers. The Ca.46 featured more powerful Fiat, Isotta-Fraschini, or Liberty engines. Two were delivered to the USA and three others were produced before the war ended, with plans for larger productions being curtailed by the Armistice. [1]
