R.Abate, G.Alegi, G.Apostolo - Aeroplani Caproni: Gianni Caproni and His Aircraft, 1910-1983
In the summer of 1916 Caproni built a small fast bomber and ground attack biplane. Powered by a 250 hp Lancia engine, it never entered production and later acquired the Ca.37 designation.

The Ca.38 was derived from the Ca.37. Although the rounded fuselage and tail booms increased its speed somewhat, the aircraft never entered production. It survived the war and was later used as trainer at the Caproni school in Vizzola Ticino.
