Macchi MC202 airplane model. The Macchi M.C.200 Saetta (or "Lightning") was the main production fighter in the Italian military when Italy entered the Second World War. Overall, a most basic of fighter designs, armed with 2 x 12.7mm machine guns and decent performance characteristics.

The Macchi M.C.200 Saetta fulfilled an Italian Air Force requirement for a new generation of piston-engine fighters to fill the ranks of the Regia Aeronautica. The system performed as designed, even containing an enclosed cockpit, though Italian pilots voiced their opinions and an open-air cockpit was introduced - reminiscent of biplane designs of World War One.
