Two comments...[edit]

Two comments: 1- the "Calquin" was an attack aircraft, not a fighter. Thus should not be listed in the category "Fighters...".
2- the "Namcu" was a different aircraft, not a variant of the "Calquin". Please see the stub article dedicated to it.
If no comments in contrary, will ammend this article in a couple of days.

Reference for Specifications[edit]

What is the correct reference for the Specifications? The Text says Janes Fighting Aircraft of World War II (which seems unlikely as it didn't fly until 1946}, but the Ref tag points to Jane's Encyclopedia of Aviation, which at least in the Edition I've got, does not list specifications Nigel Ish 21:37, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Good eye, I don't know where the specs came from but my guess is that the ref is probably the right place. I photocopied the article page from Jane's so I will check it out. and I noticed that I must have been the bonehead who made the mistake in the first place. Thanks for catching the error, Nigel.

Nigel, thanks again for catching the error. I probably transposed the specifications template from another article and didn't notice the discrepancy. FWIW Bzuk 23:24, 2 August 2007 (UTC).

Construction and the Mosquito?[edit]

The I.Ae. 24 Calquin article now states, "Patterned after the successful de Havilland Mosquito, the Calquín had a wooden structure similar to the FMA AeMB.2". Ostensibly this implies that the 1935 FMA AeMB.2 thus had a structure similar to the Mosquito, yet some years earlier. Can anyone clarify? Andy Dingley (talk) 08:30, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Jane's All The World's Aircraft 1951–52 describes the fuselage structure as being a monocoque with sandwiched plywood skin, with the wings also having a wooden structure with sandwiched plywood skin. This does sound similar to the Mosquito's structure. Don't have any information on the AeMB.2Nigel Ish (talk) 11:00, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
