Description

The C.200 serie 3 (Germany) in the garage


The ▀C.200 Saetta serie 3 is a Rank I gift German fighters with a battle rating of 1.7 (AB/RB) and 2.0 (SB). It was in the game since the start of the Open Beta Test prior to Update 1.29 in the German aviation tree. In Update 1.69 "Regia Aeronautica", the C.200 as well as the other Italian planes in the German tree were moved to the new Italian tree , although it still exists in the German tree for those who unlocked it prior to Update 1.69.

Survivability and armour

  • No armour plating
  • No armour glazing
  • Critical components located at front of aircraft (fuel, pilot, engine, controls)
  • More fuel tanks located in wings near fuselage

Armaments

Offensive armament

The C.200 serie 3 (Germany) is armed with:

  • 2 x 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns, nose-mounted (300 rpg = 600 total

Usage in the battles

The Macchi 200 is a standard fighter of the German tree. It is moderately armed for its tier, consisting of two 12.7mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns firing through the propeller arcs. an

The M.C 200 is a fairly typical pre-war Italian design, Moderate speed combined with good rates of turning, and high speed tolerance, while maintaining good controls at all speeds. Furthermore, the MC 200 is a capable climber, easily matching a lot of planes that it will regularly meet in its BR range. Further its fairly though, capable of taking hits and return to the airfield for repairs. However it does have its issues as well, most notably the poor engine power which results in poor acceleration and, much like all Italian designs, it suffers from poor armament as well, although given the lower BR then the Folgore, this is less of an issue. Furthermore, as of 1.55, its payload is not modelled, so it doesn't carry bombs, meaning its a poor ground attacker. Being only able to harm soft Ground targets.

For the guns, the same applies to all other Italian aircraft, generally you want to use Tracers, Anti-air or Stealth since they are the belts that deal the most damage. They suffer above 300 meters, so fire only at or below that range for best effects. Furthermore, much like the other Italian fighters the armament is woefully inadequate to deal with bombers, hence it is best to avoid them entirely, or focus on taking out the engines. Only exception are the very early biplane bombers, such as Swordfish, Po-2 and the likes.

In general its recommended to climb as much as you can before engaging, a good 4000 meters is important, for it can be used to get some extra speed when you need it. For Combat, it can engage in a wide array of moves, the decent energy retention and high speeds it can attain, about 800 kph, before it begins to redline, means it can be used for Boom and Zoom, or to get away. Furthermore its a good turnfighter, it outturns a lot of planes it faces, exception being biplanes and, if you are in arcade, Japanese aircraft. However take care, the engine isn't the most powerful, and accelerating is problematic, so its important to watch your speed carefully in combat. This becomes especially important since the engine is also quite prone to overheat when WEP is engaged, and it cools down slowly.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good rate of turn
  • Good rate of climb
  • Decent energy retention
  • Its sturdy
  • It has very good cockpit view, lack of canopy means superb view to the sides and above, while the slim head rest ensures a good view to the rear as well
  • Good controls at most speeds
  • Can dive well

Cons:

  • Acceleration leaves something to be desired
  • The Guns aren't exceptional, low rate of fire and ineffective above 300 meters.
  • Engine is prone to overheating
  • Its speed in level flight is nothing exceptional.

History

The M.C.200 is an Pre war Italian monoplane manufactured by the macchi aircraft company, its Name derives from its chief designer, Castoldi, designer of the famous M.C.72 racing plane.

The M.C 200 was a design put forward for the Regia Aeronautica's Series 0 tender set in 1934, a specification for a modern monowing interceptor. of the Italian aeronautical industry three firms submitted a prototype, the G.50 by Fiat, the Re 2000 by Reggiane and the M.C 200 by Macchi. Of the Three designs, the M.C 200 won the tender, being the fastest and the best aircraft, although it did have issues that needed fixing before it could enter service, most notable its issues with autorotation and sudden, violent stalls. For this reason, the Fiat G.50, while inferior to the M.C 200, was chosen for production as well, as it would be able to enter service on short notice, the G.50 went on and served in the Spanish civil war, and for a time, along side the M.C.200.
