The C.205 serie 1 is armed with:

  • 2 x 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns, nose-mounted (400 rpg = 800 total)
  • 2 x 7.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns, wing-mounted (500 rpg = 1,000 total)

Usage in battles

C.205 Serie 1 perhaps is the underrated Tier III Italian fighter, most likely due the underpowered armament which consists of 2x .50 and 2x .30 Breda-SAFAT Machine Gun. This can be a serious problem since this fighter is BnZ fighter, meaning even the successful pass will badly cripple your target instead destroying it. Therefore, stick with your teammates in order to support them. C.205 Serie 1 works well when escorting the bomber,

While so, this fighter can climb faster for its tier and BR, thanks to DB 605-A which installed in Bf 109 G-2 even in stock. You could climb up to 5000 m in to seek enemy planes, but higher than 6000-7000 m is reccomended for safest altitude. Use this advantage when retaining your energy, to outrun your enemies or gain your altitude if the first pass failed and make up the second pass.

Never attempt to make a contact against well-maneuverable like Spitfire and Yakovlev fighter, especially in the low alt. Call your teammates, gain some altitude until they cannot pursue you. Use this chance to make a counter-attack and destroy your enemy.

When in stock, the armament leaves much to be desired: low velocity, has ball ammunition which limits the effectiveness of the weapon.

Adjust your machinegun gun convergence at 250-300m for better effectiveness. Also, load your ammo with Air Target or Universal for .50 cal, and Stealth belt for .30 cal.

Overall, C.205 Serie 1 is a support BnZ fighter with good climb rate, reasonably fast for its BR. While being overshadowed by underperformed armament among all the fighter, in the hand of skilled player and following the rules, this became a bane among all the enemy fighter, even the bomber.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Very fast against its common opponents
  • Good climb rate
  • Good turn with flaps
  • Good roll rate

Cons:

  • Armament is lackluster, 12.7 mm can sometimes set fires but otherwise are not much good at dealing damage

History

The last Italian fighters of the war (the Serie 5, or "third-generation") all used the new German Daimler Benz 605 engine, putting them on a par with the best mid-war aircraft. The M.C. 205 was the only one of the Serie 5's to see much service with the Italian air force. The prototype, based on the M.C. 202, first flew in April, 1942. The added power allowed it to become the first Italian aircraft with cannon armament in the wings. It was considered extremely maneuverable at middle and low altitudes. About 200 were built and delivered starting in October, 1942, seeing combat service in the Mediterranean and Sicily the next year. Another 112 were built after the armistice and delivered to Fascist Italian forces, who used the plane until summer, 1944. Others continued on in Allied use and after the war remained in service as combat fighters until 1947.
