The Breda Ba. 65's first flight was in 1935, served with the Regia Aeronautica was also used by Chile, Iraq, Spain, Portugal and captured aircraft, tested by the U.S.S.R. With Italy's entry into WWII in June 1940 the Ba 65's were used against the British in North Africa. Serviceability was low in desert conditions. The last aircraft was lost during the British offensive in February 1941. The Iraqi Ba 65's saw limited action against the British during the 1941 insurrection in that country.
