This was the Saetta, Arrow. Like all early Italian fighters, its weakness was in it armament, only 2 50 caliber guns. Despite this, it was a great plane. The only surviving example of this aircraft in in the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Wright Patterson, Dayton Ohio. I went there for my birthday last year. Great museum!!
I liked the fact that the MC200 had an actual ammo load compared to the G50, but both planes were pretty much the same in WarThunder: turn fighters that couldn't go in the vertical. I liked the MC202 when I first got it a few patches ago, it felt nimble and agile as it's name suggested. But now it's been hit with the nerf bat I feel.
I loved that plane when I unlocked it. First match, in Pelileu, I believe, I felt like I was flying a Reisen. No one could get in my tail without me out turning them and getting the kill with a few bullets.
But than again, after you unlock the BF109 for Germany, the MC202 becomes pretty pointless and gets easily outmatched by all of those cannons and such. I still have use it just for fun.
long as I don;t face Spits or Beaufighters in large numbers, I can handle most of what the MC202 faces in most matches. But yeah, the 109 just outshines the MC202, which makes me wonder if the MC205 with the German engine and 20mm cannons will be introduced at some point.
