  IAR 80 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Work began on the IAR.80 prototype in late 1937, originally with an open cockpit and the 870 hp (649 kW) IAR K14-III C32 engine which was a licensed Gnome-Rhône 14K II Mistral Major.
In this case 13.2 mm (50 cal) FN machine guns in use in Romanian SM.79s were stripped from those planes and added to the IAR.80 in a new lengthened wing.
The IAR.80 was an excellent design that in many ways mirrored the construction and performance of the Hawker Hurricane.

Work began on the IAR.80 prototype in late 1937, originally with an open cockpit and the 870hp IAR K14-III C32 engine which was a licensed Gnome-Rhône 14K II Mistral Major.
The prototype had mounted only two Belgian-made Fabrique Nationale 7.92mm machine guns, a licensed modification of the Browning 30 cal. This armament suite was clearly not heavy enough for combat use, and the production model was supposed to mount six of these guns.

The modification of the existing IAR.80 as a dive bomber was seen as a reasonable response, easier than designing an entirely new aircraft – as well as having all of the obvious production benefits.
One is that it was an outdated plane that should have been pulled from combat in 1942 or '43 at the latest.

While the IAR.80 was serving well on the eastern front, it was that summer on the 12th of June that the USAAF made its first attempt on Ploesti.
In the entire period starting with the movement of the 6th and 8th forward in October 1942 to the withdrawal of the 43rd in June 1943, the FARR claimed only 39 kills for the loss of 26 in combat and 49 to all causes.
Although the IAR.80 was no match for the US escorts, this was addressed by attacking the escorts in Grupul 7 's Bf 109's, while the IAR's of Grupul 6 (back home for their refit) and 2 continued on to attack the bombers.

Although the 112 was somewhat more modernand much more heavily armed with two machine guns and two 20mm cannon, the IAR.80 completely outclassed it in all other respects.The FARR was impressed, and ordered 100 of the new fighters on the 18th of December, 1939.
The modification of the existing IAR.80 as a dive bomber was seen as a reasonable response,easier than designing an entirely new aircraft – as well as having all of the obvious production benefits.
An ongoing program to fit the IAR.80 with a morepowerful engine had been in the works for most of the design's lifetime, but this proved to be a fruitless endeavor.

The Russian counterattack at Stalingrad was initially aimed at the Romanian army forces, and the air force was hard put to support the troops in their retreat during early 1943; 12 I.A.R.80/81s were lost in the counterattack, which began in November 1942.
Citing the inferiority of the I.A.R.80 against the P-51 Mustang, the I.A.R. 80 units were withdrawn from the defense of Bucharest on July 5, 1944 and sent to Moldavia to oppose the invading Soviets.
The I.A.R.80 continued as a first-line figher until 1947, when it and the Bf-109 were replaced by the Lavochkin La-9.

 Classic Airframe 1/48 He-112B
When the first planes started arriving they were tested competitively against the locally designed IAR.80 prototype.
At the same time the test flights demonstrated a number of disadvantages of the 112 in general, notably the underpowered engine and poor speed.
The result of the fly-off was that the IAR.80 was ordered into immediate production, and orders for any additional He 112's were cancelled.

The IAR.80 was based on the technology that IAR had acquired by building the PZL P.24, but was a low-wing monoplane with rectractable landing gear and very clean lines.
The IAR.80 was a good aircraft, but never had a really powerful engine.
A small number remained in service until 1949.
