Manufactured in Italy and the United States, the Pomilio PE was effectively used by thirty squadrons for reconnaissance and artillery spotting. Like its predecessors, the PC and PD, the PE two-seater biplane had a wood and metal airframe but featured a redesigned tail with larger tailplanes. Built in large numbers, it was very fast, maneuverable and had an excellent rate of climb.
