Fiat CR.42bis
Unit: 1/3 "Kor Asz" vadasz-szazad, 1/II Vadasz-osztaly
Serial: V.204

Kassa, Hungary (today Kosice, Slovakia), early 1941. This aircraft, wearing the famous 'Ace of Hearts' squadron insignia, has received a German inspired three-tone splinter camouflage. The fuselage codes were also painted in black following Luftwaffe practice. The squadron insignia has been applied directly to the fuselage under the cockpit without its usual red-and-white surround.

Fiat CR.42bis
Unit: unknown
Serial: V.216

Unknown unit and location, Hungary, April 1941. When Hungary joined Germany in its attack against Yugoslavia on 6 April, 1941, all MKHL aircraft serving in the conflict got the so called unified Axis anti-aircraft markings, consisting of a yellow engine cowling, tail, and also a 50 cm wide band on the fuselage just behind the cockpit (Order No.108.888). The reason for this was the high number of modern German-made aircraft in active service within the Yugoslavian VVKJ. However, in a matter of weeks the tricolour chevron would be reinstalled on the tail, leaving only the yellow fuselage band and sometimes, the engine cowling. Apparently, this aircraft is camouflaged in its original Italian C-3 camouflage scheme, with a light green base oversprayed with a dense dark green mottling and light Grey-Blue undersurfaces.

Fiat CR.42bis
Unit: 1/3 "Kor Asz" vadasz-szazad, 1/II Vadasz-osztaly
Serial: V.218

Unknown location, USSR (?), June 1941. A number of Hungarian Fiat CR.42s took an active part in the early fighting against the Soviet Union. The yellow tail and engine cowling of this CR.42 has been overpainted with grey to tone down the aircraft for operations over Russia during the summer of 1941. The red fuselage codes have also been oversprayed with a green colour. It also appears that the unit insignia on the fuselage has been partially oversprayed to tone down its white background. The red-and-white surround previously applied to the later seems to have been altogether deleted by this period.

Fiat CR.42bis
Unit: 1/4 "Szent Gyorgy" vadasz-szazad
Serial: V.221

Hungary, early 1942. By 1942, all the remaining CR.42s of 1/II and 2/II Vadasz-osztaly had been relegated to the fighter training role, away from the frontline. Unlike the earlier CR.32s, most CR.42s were delivered already camouflaged in a number of different Italian schemes. In this case a Marrone Mimetico 1 mottling over a Verde Mimetico 1 base with light blue-grey (?) undersides, much favoured by the Fiat works. The red fuselage codes have also been partially overpainted with a green colour to render them less visible.

Fiat CR.42bis
Unit: 1/4 "Szent Gyorgy" vadasz-szazad
Serial: V.228

Hungary, 1941. This machine of the 1/4 'St. George' fighter squadron is wearing the regulation yellow identification band and red fuselage codes of the period. When it first entered service with the MKHL in 1939, the CR.42 was one of the best fighters in Europe. However, by the time it went into combat over the USSR it was found totally outclassed by the few Soviet I-16 fighters it encountered. With virtually no aerial opposition, the CR.42s of 1/3 vadasz-szazad confined themselves to strafing targets of opportunity and harassing the retreating Soviet forces.

Fiat CR.42bis
Unit: unknown
Serial: V.234

Fiat CR.42, V.234, in May 1941, soon after the campaign in Yugoslavia and shortly before the invasion of the Soviet Union. The aircraft wears an Hungarian variation of the Balkan Theatre markings as the tail and engine cowling only were yellow on the allied Luftwaffe machines. German aircraft did not adopt a fuselage band until the invasion of the Soviet Union, where the standard Eastern Front identity markings used by the Germans and their allies became a yellow fuselage band and wingtips. At that time the Hungarians followed the example of the Luftwaffe and moved the band to a position just in front of the tail assembly. Camouflage finish is one of the standard Italian schemes.

Fiat CR.42bis
Unit: 2/4 "Tor" vadasz-szazad, 2/II Vadasz-osztaly
Serial: V.237

Hungary, 1941. Contrary to what's depicted by the artist in this profile, period b/w photographs show this aircraft in a light green base with oversprayed dark green mottling following the Italian Schema C-3, just like the previous profile (Verde Mimetico 53192/ Verde Mime-tico 3 with Grigio Mimetico 1 undersurfaces). The fuselage code, V.237, was in red oversprayed with green. The unit marking was a white pennant with a winged dagger. This one CR.42 suffered a broken starboard main landing gear leg on a rough landing.
