An evolution of the Fiat G55, the G59 was the last piston-engined fighter aircraft to be produced in the world. This aircraft was very significant in that it re-established the Italian aviation industry after the war. First deliveries came in 1951, with the aircraft in active service until 1965. Powered by the legendary British Rolls-Roce Merlin engine instead of the Dailmer-Benz 605 for which it was designed.
