The A.V.I.A LM.02 was a dive bombing glider developed by Italy during 1942.


Carrying two bombs under the fuselage, the LM.02 had a maximum diving speed of 280 m.p.h. After being towed to the battle area and making his attack, it is presumed that the pilot would attempt to glide back to his own lines. Of all-wood construction, the LM.02 had Junkers-type dive brakes and jettisonable landing gear.[1]
