The Hungarians were aware that the CR.42 was conceptually outdated, but considered the rapid re-equipment of their fighter component vital and the Italian government had expressed its willingness to forgo delivery positions in order to expedite the re-equipment of Hungarian units. <BR> Between 16 June and 20 November 1939, the CR.42s arrived in Hungary and 1. vadsz ezred (1st Fighter Regiment) began conversion from the Fiat CR.32. First squadron equipped with the fighter was 1/3.  KQr sz vadszszzad ( Heart of Ace squadron), which also suffered the first fatal accident when szakaszvezetQ Bla Simon crashed at Mtysfld with V.207 on 4 October 1939. <BR> In November 1939, Hungary ordered an additional 50 CR.42s from Italy, which arrived between 10 February and 30 June 1940. 1. vadsz ezred s two two-squadron component groups, the 1./I osztly (Fighter Group) at Mtysfld (later to Kolozsvr-Szamosfalva where it was renumbered to 2/II. osztly) and the 1./II osztly at Mtysfld, Budapest, had received their full complement of fighters by the late spring of 1940. In 1942, the Hungarians and the Italians bartered a captured Yugoslavian S.79 against two more CR.42s, thus MKHL used a total of 70 CR 42. <P> <CENTER> <IMG SRC=images/falco7.jpg><BR> <FONT SIZE=2> Fiat CR.42 V.256 of 1/6 "KQr sz" vadszszzad after a landing accident. </FONT SIZE=2> </CENTER> <P> <B><U>April 1941</U></B><BR> Hungary used their new fighter for the first time during the Yugoslavian campaign in April 1941, they flew a number of sweeps into Yugoslav airspace during the assault. However, some concern was expressed when it was discovered that the CR.42s were incapable of intercepting the Yugoslav Blenheims that attacked Pcs and Szeged. <P> <CENTER> <IMG SRC=images/falco8.jpg><BR> <FONT SIZE=2> Fiat CR.42 V.239 of 2/4 Arrow squadron. </FONT SIZE=2> </CENTER> <P> <B><U>June 1941</U></B><BR> Nevertheless when a special Air Force Brigade was formed less than two months later to accompany the Hungarian Fast Corps that was to participate in the assault on the Soviet Union to be launched in June (Hungary declared war on Soviet Union on 27 June), the principal fighter element was provided by the 12 CR.42s of the 1/3.  KQr sz vadszszzad of the 1./II osztly. <P> <B><U>27 June 1941</U></B><BR> At around 08:00, the MKHL made its first air attack against Soviet targets, when around 30 bombers comprising Junkers Ju 86s of 4/3. and 4/4. bombzszzad (Bomber Squadron) and one squadron of Caproni Ca.135s of 3/5. bombzszzad attacked targets in Stanislav (now Ivano-Frankovsk). They were escorted by 9 CR 42s of the 2/3.  Ricsi vadszszzad of the 2./II osztly led by szzados vitz <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Aladr Szobrnczy</A>. After the bombers had done their work, the escorting fighters strafed targets of opportunity in the area. Prmester (Sergeant) <A HREF="hungary_kertesz.htm">Arpd Kertsz</A> was lost in dense clouds and when he finally broke through, he sighted a reconnaissance machine. When he flew towards it, it opened fire so he identified it as a Russian reconnaissance aircraft (probably a Polikarpov R-5). After a short exchange of fire, the reconnaissance aircraft burst into flames. He turned back towards his base flying on his instruments but after a while, his fuel ran low and he decided to land. Fortunately, when he landed he found himself among Rumanians. However, it took him more than a week to squeeze some petrol out of them. At last, they gave him some but it was still so little that he had to return to his unit via his pre-war base in Hungary. <BR> During the same mission, the fighter squadron lost CR 42 V.217, when zszls Lszl Kzr was shot down by antiaircraft fire. He made a forced landing and after setting fire to his personal mount for two years, he managed to return after 16 days spent hiding behind enemy lines, with the help of local Ukrainian anti-Communist guerrillas. <P> <CENTER> <IMG SRC=images/falco_hungary_3.jpg><BR> <FONT SIZE=2> V.264 of  KQr sz Vadszszzad. <BR> Chris Banyai-Riepl<BR> <B>Image kindly provided by Chris Banyai-Riepl</B><BR> (This image first appeared at <A HREF="http://members.xoom.com/profileart/index.html">The Aviation Profiles of Bob Pearson & Chris Banyai-Riepl</A> and <A HREF="http://www.internetmodeler.com/">Internet Modeler</A>). </FONT SIZE=2> </CENTER> <P> <B><U>29 June 1941</U></B><BR> Three pilots of the 2/3. "Richie" vadszszzad had claimed a SB bomber each, from a seven-aircraft formation that attempted to attack Csap (today Chop, Ukraine) at 11:25. <BR> Despite poor weather conditions over the sub-Carpathian region on this day, Hungarian aircraft did undertake several combat missions. 25 Ju86K-2 and Ca.135bis bombers, escorted by Fiat CR.42s, targeted Striy. This was the last action of a two-day strategic bombing offensive against Soviet rear area targets, in retaliation of the bombing of Kassa. While returning from the mission, Fiat CR.42 V.245, of the 2/3. "Richie" vadszszzad, flown by fhadnagy <A HREF="hungary_pottyondy.htm">Lszl Pottyondy</A> force-landed near Tiszavsr. The aircraft was 50% damaged, but the pilot escaped uninjured. <P> <B><U>8 July 1941</U></B><BR> The 2/3. vadszszzad moved from their Hungarian advanced base at Bustyahza to a captured Russian airfield some 8km from of Kolomea. <BR> The same day, the 2/4.  Repl tr vadszszzad of the 2./II vadszosztly suffered the loss of a whole section when three CR.42s (V.253, V.254 and V.255) crashed due to bad weather encountered over the Carpathian Mountains. The section leader, hadnagy Pl Irnyi, suffered severe head injuries when his aircraft hit a tree, but he recovered and eventually became an ace pilot. One of his men, Szakaszvezet Antal Nbli hit the ground violently north-east of Dora and was killed instantly. The third pilot, Szakaszvezet Endre Bajcsy baled out of his doomed aircraft and broke his hip when he came down on rough terrain. <P> <B><U>10 July 1941</U></B><BR> During the day Hadnagy <A HREF="hungary_vamos.htm">Vmos </A> section provided air cover for advancing units of the Hungarian Fast Corps. There were no enemy aircraft in the air but, not wishing to return without firing their guns, the three Fiats attacked and dispersed a retreating Soviet column in the Smotricz area. Almost immediately, five Soviet I-16s appeared and, in the ensuing dogfight, <A HREF="hungary_vamos.htm">Vmos</A> shot down one of them. The section severely damaged another and sent the other three fleeing eastward. <P> On the same day, the Hungarian kzelfeldert-szzad (with nine Heinkel He46s) and the 2/3. "Richie" vadszszzad (with nine CR.42s) moved to Yezierzany landing ground. <P> <B><U>12 July 1941</U></B><BR> During they day, alezredes (Lieutenant Colonel) Bla Orosz, commander of the air contingent attached to the Fast corps, ordered szzados <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Aladr Szobrnczy</A>, commander of 2/3. vadszszzad, to provide escort for two short-range reconnaissance squadrons, which were to bomb an enemy transport assembly point west of Zwanczyk. <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Szobrnczy</A>, fhadnagy <A HREF="hungary_pottyondy.htm">Lszl Pottyondy</A>, hadnagy <A HREF="hungary_vamos.htm">Gyz Vmos</A> (CR.42 V.265), szakaszvezet <A HREF="hungary_soos.htm">Pter Sos</A> and szakaszvezet <A HREF="hungary_balogh.htm">Jnos Balogh</A> took off at 10:00 and soon joined the formation of WM 21 Slyom aircraft of the VIIth and Xth kzelfeldert-szzad. On the way to the target, <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Szobrnczy</A> caught sight of three twin-engined Soviet bombers. As the Fiats dived on them, seven Soviet I-16s appeared suddenly and engaged the Hungarian biplanes. <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Szobrnczy</A> selected a Soviet fighter and soon saw his tracers penetrating the cockpit. The machine began to trail thick smoke and hit the ground west of Zvanchyk. <A HREF="hungary_pottyondy.htm">Pottyondy</A> also attacked an I-16 but, at the same time, he was jumped by another I-16. He noticed with satisfaction that <A HREF="hungary_soos.htm">Sos</A> took over his victim-to-be and he was able to concentrate on his attacker. Despite the Soviet machine s advantage of altitude, thanks to the superb manoeuvrability of the CR.42, <A HREF="hungary_pottyondy.htm">Pottyondy</A> managed to get behind the Russian and his bullets tore pieces of the fuselage. The Russian pilot steadied his plane only to fly into the machine gun fire of the oncoming <A HREF="hungary_vamos.htm">Vmos</A>. The two machines raced towards each other and in the next second, they collided head-on. <A HREF="hungary_pottyondy.htm">Pottyondy</A> saw two parachutes floating downward but he was immediately attacked by another I-16. It took some time to get behind this opponent but he finally did it. The bullets hit the tail and then moved forward on to the section between the engine and the cockpit. <A HREF="hungary_pottyondy.htm">Pottyondy</A> knew that he finally had got his first victory out of three chances since smoke poured out from the I-16s engine as the Fiat s machine guns kept pounding the fuselage. Finally, it spun towards the earth near Dunayevtsy, out of control. Meanwhile the WM 21 Slyoms had completed their task and turned for home. Despite being fired upon by effective ground fire, all but one Slyoms returned, although two of them had to be later written off due to the amount of combat damage received in the low-level attack. The exception was the WM 21 of hadnagy Ferenc Mlnssy (pilot) and zszls Pl Mnucz (observer), which was posted missing at noon. It turned out that they force-landed east of Zvanchyk and eventually returned to base. <BR> <A HREF="hungary_pottyondy.htm">Pottyondy</A> and <A HREF="hungary_balogh.htm">Balogh</A>, who also had shot down an I-16, were the last to leave the area yet they were the first back in Kolomea. Soon <A HREF="hungary_soos.htm">Sos</A> arrived and also reported an air victory. On the return, he had got low on fuel and had to land to refuel at another airfield. However <A HREF="hungary_vamos.htm">Vmos</A>, who they know had bailed out after the collision, and <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Szobrnczy</A> were still missing. After shooting down his opponent and watching <A HREF="hungary_vamos.htm">Vmos </A> collision, <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Szobrnczy</A> had decided to try to find him. Circling around the parachute, he noticed that <A HREF="hungary_vamos.htm">Vmos</A> hung motionless. When his body hit the top of threes, a Russian patrol appeared at the edge of the wood. <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Szobrnczy</A> sent the Russians running with a few well-aimed bursts. Looking around he saw a meadow along the south-east edge of the forest and put the Fiat down. The machine came to a halt after about 250 feet and the undercarriage sank into the soft ground. A group of horsemen appeared galloping towards him and <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Szobrnczy</A> draw his pistol but, to his great relief, it was not needed for they were Hungarian hussars who had watched his landing. <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Szobrnczy</A> detailed a hussar to guard the plane, mounted the hussars horse and began to search for <A HREF="hungary_vamos.htm">Vmos</A>. They found the parachute quickly, but it took ninety minutes to find the pilot, who they found sleeping in an abandoned forester hut! The happy <A HREF="hungary_vamos.htm">Vmos</A> explained that he lost consciousness upon the impact and did not remember pulling the ripcord. He came to when he hit the foliage. At the edge of the forest, he was fired on, so he went farther into the woods until he saw the hut where, exhausted, he fell into a deep sleep. In the meantime, a Hungarian armoured unit reached the scene and then towed the Fiat on to solid ground. <A HREF="hungary_szobranczy.htm">Szobrnczy</A> landed back at Kolomea at 19:00 and the unit could claim five victories during the day with no losses of pilots. <BR> According to some sources was the I-16, which collided with <A HREF="hungary_vamos.htm">Vmos</A> credited as an unconfirmed to <A HREF="hungary_pottyondy.htm">Pottyondy</A>, who fired at this aircraft before the collision. <P> Twelve CR.42s of the 1/3. "KQr sz" vadszszzad, under the command of szzados <A HREF="hungary_tomor.htm">Lszl Tomor</A>, redeployed to Kolomea (Kolomiya), and were immediately engaged in combat operations. <P> <B><U>middle of July 1941</U></B><BR> A few days later the 2/3.  Richie vadszszzad was pulled back to Hungary. They had claimed 7 victories during this short period but was to be back on the Eastern Front during 1944-45 flying Bf109s under Szzados <A HREF="hungary_pottyondy.htm">Pottyondy</A> to further distinguish themselves. <BR> <P> <CENTER> <IMG SRC=images/falco9.jpg><BR> <FONT SIZE=2> Fiat CR.42 V.261. </FONT SIZE=2> </CENTER> <P> <CENTER> <IMG SRC=images/falco_hungary_1.jpg><BR> <FONT SIZE=2> Colour profile of the aircraft above - V.261 of 1/6  KQr sz Vadszszzad. <BR> Chris Banyai-Riepl<BR> <B>Image kindly provided by Chris Banyai-Riepl</B><BR> (This image first appeared at <A HREF="http://members.xoom.com/profileart/index.html">The Aviation Profiles of Bob Pearson & Chris Banyai-Riepl</A> and <A HREF="http://www.internetmodeler.com/">Internet Modeler</A>). </FONT SIZE=2> </CENTER> <P> Meanwhile, the CR.42s of the 1/3. vadszszzad were accompanying the Air Force Brigade deeper into the Soviet Union. <P> <B><U>14-19 July 1941</U></B><BR> Between the 14 and 19 July, they flew several reconnaissance and escort sorties. <P> <B><U>20 July 1941</U></B><BR> On this day, the 12 Fiats moved to Bar were the unit shared the airfield with a German reconnaissance unit and a Slovakian Avia squadron. <P> <B><U>22 July 1941</U></B><BR> Szzados <A HREF="hungary_tomor.htm">Lszl Tomor</A>, squadron CO of the 1/3. vadszszzad took off from Bar airfield with four other CR.42s to reconnoitre the area between Braclav, Bersady, Tulchyn and Dzhurin. During this mission, they attacked and strafed enemy columns and armour. Ground fire was intense and only one Fiat escaped unscathed, because the aircraft lacked armour protection and thus were vulnerable to ground fire. Szzados <A HREF="hungary_tomor.htm">Tomor</A> was wounded in five different places, and received the most punishment; nevertheless, he returned to base. <P> <B><U>end July-August 1941</U></B><BR> The vadszszzad moved to Sutyska, Annopol and Berschad during the next few days and flew escort and patrol missions from these airfields. <P> <B><U>5 August 1941</U></B><BR> During the day, it was reported to the Hungarian headquarters that a multi-engined Soviet aircraft had landed in the village of Podvysokoye, possibly with the order to rescue some high-ranking officers or commissars of the surrounded Soviet army in the Uman pocket. Six CR.42s of the 1/3. vadszszzad took of and szzados <A HREF="hungary_tomor.htm">Lszl Tomor</A> lead the first section, while hadnagy Jnos  Hanzi Pettendi led the second. Another pilot who took part in this mission was szakaszvezet <A HREF="hungary_gocsei.htm">Lajos Gcsei</A>. They circled around the village at 6000 feet, but they couldn t locate the target. <A HREF="hungary_tomor.htm">Tomor</A> spotted a building, which looked like a command post; thus he decided to investigate. He dived steeply, followed by the others. The antiaircraft batteries remained silent, reluctant to disclose their location too soon. As his Fiat zoomed downward, <A HREF="hungary_tomor.htm">Tomor</A> suddenly sighted a well-camouflaged three-engined machine standing next to a house at the village s perimeter. A few jerks on the stick, slight adjustments, then he pressed the firing button. Now the defences opened up. But it was too late. The tracers found their mark and the big transport went up in flames. All the Hungarian CR.42s sent at least one long burst into the burning aircraft. However the antiaircraft fire was heavy and every one of the fighters received hits and only two being able to return to base. Two pilots were missing but luckily <A HREF="hungary_gocsei.htm">Gcsei</A> soon rang and reported that his rudder had been shot off and he had made an emergency landing at Anapol (80km west of Rovno). However, there was no news from Pettendi, a famous sporting airman. Despite the ensuing aerial search and inquiries made through intelligence channels, no trace of him was ever found thus making him the squadrons first and only pilot killed in combat during this tour of duty. <P> <B><U>8 August 1941</U></B><BR> Few more sorties were flown before the unit moved to Pervomaysk on 8 August. <P> <B><U>11 August 1941</U></B><BR> During the day two sections of the squadron and the Reggiane Re2000 flight, which was attached to the squadron for testing of this fighter under combat conditions, took of under the command of Szzados <A HREF="hungary_tomor.htm">Tomor</A> to escort Fhadnagy Szakonyi s Caproni Ca135 detachment. The mission was to destroy the important bridge over the river Bug at Nikolayev since this bridge was the last remaining escape route of the encircled Soviet army. The bridge was however strongly defended by antiaircraft batteries and fighters. On the way to the target the antiaircraft fire was heavy. Most of the bombers were hit but yet they destroyed the bridge and severely damaged the railway station. On the return flight Soviet I-16s attacked the Hungarian aircraft. During the ensuing combat <A HREF="hungary_tomor.htm">Tomor</A>, Szakaszvezet <A HREF="hungary_gocsei.htm">Gcsei</A>, Zszls <A HREF="hungary_kun.htm">Kun</A>, Zszls <A HREF="hungary_szonyi.htm">Mrton Sznyi</A> and Zszls <A HREF="hungary_baranyai.htm">Baranyai</A> each claimed victories. This was the 1/3. "KQr sz" vadszszzad first five claims during the Second World War and all CR.42s were hit but none were lost. The Re2000s claimed 2 more Soviet fighters, but had lost a pilot. One crippled Caproni claimed 3 and another Caproni claimed 1 additional Soviet fighter. <P> <B><U>13 August 1941</U></B><BR> Zszls Olveczky flew an escort mission during the day when a Heinkel He46 of the I. Short Range Reconnaissance vadszszzad was ordered to attack a ship from the Soviet Black Sea Fleet, which had sailed up north in the Bug Estuary. The mission was a success and the ship was by one 10-kg bomb and it retreated out in the Black Sea. <P> <B><U>19 August 1941</U></B><BR> During the following days the unit flew escort, reconnaissance and patrol missions before moving to Krivoy Rog on 19 August. <P> <B><U>26 August 1941</U></B><BR> During the next days the vadszszzad flew several sorties over the industrial centre of Dniepropetrovsk. On this day Hadnagy <A HREF="hungary_seres.htm">Albert Seres </A> section flew a sortie over the city and was engaged in combat with Soviet I-16s. <A HREF="hungary_seres.htm">Seres</A> and Zszls <A HREF="hungary_szonyi.htm">Sznyi</A> claimed two I-16s each while Zszls <A HREF="hungary_baranyai.htm">Baranyai</A> claimed a fifth I-16. <A HREF="hungary_baranyai.htm">Baranyai s</A> aircraft was damaged during this combat and he wounded himself but he managed to bring back his fighter and was himself patched up by the medics and flew again the next day. <P> <B><U>27 August 1941</U></B><BR> Next day Fhadnagy <A HREF="hungary_ujszaszy.htm">Ujszszy s</A> section was first over Dniepropetrovsk. The section surprised Soviet fighters taking off. During the combat <A HREF="hungary_ujszaszy.htm">Ujszszy</A> and Trzsrmester (Staff Sergeant) <A HREF="hungary_szobranci.htm">Szobrnci</A> claimed two I-17s each while Zszls <A HREF="hungary_szenasi.htm">Sznsi<A> claimed a fifth. The section claimed 5 victories in this combat and in the evening the German intelligence confirmed the destruction of at least 5, possibly 6 aircraft. <P> During a second patrol over Dniepropetrovsk Hadnagy <A HREF="hungary_seres.htm">Seres</A> and Zszls <A HREF="hungary_baranyai.htm">Baranyai</A> claimed two more fighters. <BR> <P> Also during the day Zszls <A HREF="hungary_szonyi.htm">Sznyi</A> claimed an additional Soviet aircraft but he was himself shot down and taken POW. <P> <B><U>2 September 1941</U></B><BR> During the day Szzados <A HREF="hungary_tomor.htm">Tomor</A> strafed Soviet ground forces at the Dniepropetrovsk bridgehead together with eight more pilots with great success. <P> <B><U>5 September 1941</U></B><BR> This was repeated three days later with even more success against soviet forces on the Zaporoshye Island, which was the subject of bitter fighting. <P> <B><U>6-17 September 1941</U></B><BR> During the next twelve six bomber escort missions were flown in the same area. <P> <B><U>20 September 1941</U></B><BR> On this day Szzados <A HREF="hungary_tomor.htm">Tomor</A> led five fighters to help an encircled German regiment east of Nikopol. They strafed the enemy and while they were doing so the Germans launched a counter-attack and broke out of the ring. <P> <B><U>22 September 1941</U></B><BR> During this day five Soviet bombers attacked the airfield the vadszszzad was operating from (during a soccer match!). The unit didn t suffer any losses but the Reconnaissance vadszszzad, which they shared airfield with, had two men killed and 15 wounded. <P> <B><U>10 October 1941</U></B><BR> The reconnaissance, escort and patrol missions continued and on this day the vadszszzad moved to Dniepropetrovsk. One section was transferred to Golubovka and the other to Losovaya. However the front moved so rapidly eastward that it was not possible to fly sorties from their bases. <P> <B><U>3 November 1941</U></B><BR> During this day the fighter, bomber and reconnaissance vadszszzads and the mobile workshop were ordered to assemble at Dnieprodshershinsk <P> <B><U>15 November 1941</U></B><BR> Few more missions were flown and on 15 November the unit was told to prepare themselves for the return to Hungary. The Fiat CR.42s - and indeed the Ju86s and He46s - were not considered suitable for the Russian winter. No combat aircraft of the Magyar Kirlyi Lgier saw service in Russia between December 1941 and May 1942. <BR> <P> <B><U>19 November 1941</U></B><BR> On this day the vadszszzad left the front but they were forced to land at Vinnitsa due to bad weather and they were grounded there for five days. <P> <B><U>26 November 1941</U></B><BR> During this day the last biplane fighters was retired from combat service in the Magyar Kirlyi Lgier when the last ones crossed the Carpathians and set course for their home base at Mtysfld. <BR> The 1/3. vadszszzad claimed 18 and 1 probable victories during 114 missions and 447 individual combat sorties. They lost two pilots and two aircraft. Hadnagy Pettendi was killed in action and Zszls <A HREF="hungary_szonyi.htm">Sznyi</A> was taken POW. <P> <CENTER> <IMG SRC=images/falco10.jpg> <IMG SRC=images/falco12.jpg><BR> </CENTER> <P> The
