The Savoia-Marchetti SM.84 three-engined bomber was developed to replace the Italian Air Force SM.79 series.

There are currently no production history notes available for the Savoia-Marchetti SM-84 Bomber / Torpedo Bomber. Rest assured that we are hard at work on adding more information to the Military Factory so please check back at another time down the road.

Each entry goes through a lengthy research process that produces the final write up. The write up is then complemented by appropriate imagery for the associated text through a lengthy picture hunting process. Statistics are then verified before the entry is completed in our database and posted for review.
