Sticking with things Italian, there is the Piaggio bomber. No full of character, just ugly thanks to the nose.

When I argued with the Empress, I always had the last word. That word was, sorry. But it was the last word.

Personally I'm not a fan of this particular colour scheme, but I love the aircraft. Rugged, purposeful, yet really quite pretty.

That is beauty, and character, combined into one mean, big, machine. [&o] [:)]

Edit: And the colour scheme is stunningly beautiful.

Oh yeah baby [:)] The tail design probably means the B-17 is higher in the beauty ranking, but a mother of all aircraft all the same.

Not what I call beautiful, but rather impossibly pretty

Funny. The tail design is the clincher for me. The Lancaster is the standard for a good looking heavy WWII bomber that I compare the others against. And, so far, no one (that I recall) has been close.

U-505 a Type IXC.

Only one of four U-Boats in existence as museum ships.

The most heavily damaged U-Boat to make it to port.

Became the butt of jokes thanks to her four in a row botched patrols.

Her captain shot himself in the control room while under depth charge attack on her 10th patrol.

Captured on her 12th patrol.

That was also done with escort carriers for Operation Torch.
