Description

GarageImage C.200 serie 7.jpg


The C.200 Saetta serie 7 is a Rank I Italian fighter with a battle rating of 1.7 (AB) and 2.0 (RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.69 "Regia Aeronautica", but a variant existed in the German tech tree prior to the update.

M.C.200 vs P-36C Hawk over industrial zone in Ruhr.

The Macchi 200 is a standard fighter of the Italian air tree. It is moderately armed for its tier, consisting of two 12.7 mm 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 battle rating range. It is 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 battle rating then the Folgore, this is less of an issue. Furthermore, as of 1.55, its payload is not modeled, so it does not carry bombs, meaning it is a poor ground attacker. Being only able to harm soft Ground targets.

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 7 is armed with:

  • 2 x 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns, nose-mounted (370 rpg = 740 total)

Usage in the battles

In general it is recommended to climb as much as you can before engaging, a good 3,000-4,000 m is important, for it can be used to get some extra speed once needed. 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 red-line, means it can be used for Boom & Zoom, or to get away. Furthermore its a good turn-fighter, it out-turns a lot of planes it faces, exception being biplanes and Japanese aircraft. However take care, the engine is not the most powerful, and accelerating is problematic. So it is important to watch the speed carefully in combat. This becomes especially important as the engine is also quite prone to overheat when WEP is engaged, though it cools fairly quickly on 100%.

For the armament, the same applies to all other Italian aircraft; generally you want to use "Omni-Purpose Belts", they have that kinetic energy that you deserve to kill enemy planes and the " I- Incendiary" shell that works better than the IAI in terms of setting enemy on fire due to the fact that IAI aren't well modelled in-game. Shell velocity is low, hence they suffer above 300 meters, so only fire 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.

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.

Media

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
