Dewoitine D.520: Laissez voler l’imagination.

Émile Dewoitine’s racy D.520 was without a shadow of a doubt the best French-built fighter to see action during WW2. Sadly, and as usual in those years, it was another French case of a little too late, too chaotic and just too late.

Magnificent redemption of a “D.520”, maybe a little too liberal…, or maybe not. The author seems to have decided to emphatise the already slick lines of the Dewoitine. His “D.520” has a very long, long nose; very capable to bear a 24V engine instead of the 12V Hispano-Suiza 12Y-45. An engine than needs very little refrigeration taking in count that very shallow belly radiator.
