Maximum speed: 330 km/h

Ammunition: 2 Spandau type machine guns

- in the original draft, the engine was to be a Rolls-Royce Kestrell
- Porco Rosso bought the plane after he left the army
- the R on the back of his plane represents “R” in Rosso and “R” in Republic
- the Savoia model was not produced more because of three reasons:
  1. the pilot’s poor visibility due to the location of the engine
  2. the plane’s instability when at low speeds
  3. inflexibility
