The Cant Z.1007 was developed from the Cant Z.506 seaplane, an aircraft that had stablished many world records in the late 1930s. It was a land-based version and incorporated many improvements, especially on the powerplant. Filippo Zapatta, an italian engineer specialized in naval construction, designed the Z.506 and Z.1007 in a totally wooden structure.
The Z.1007 saw action during the later stages of the Battle of Britain, Italian invasion of Greece, bombing campaign over Malta and in the campaigns in North Africa and on the Eastern Front.
