C.200 serie 7 (Germany)
|This page is about the aircraft C.200 serie 7 (Germany). For other uses, see C.200 (Disambiguation)|
The ▀C.200 Saetta serie 7 is a Rank I gift German figher with a battle rating of 1.7 (AB) and 2.0 (RB/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 in front of aircraft (fuel, pilot, engine, controls)
- More fuel tanks located in wings near the fuselage
The C.200 serie 7 (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. 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 BR 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.
In general it is recommended to climb as much as you can before engaging, a good 3000-4000 meters 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 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 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.
