The '''{{Specs|name}}''' is a Rank {{Specs|rank}} gift German fighter {{Battle-rating|3}}. 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 G.50 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. The Fiat G.50 is the oldest of the ''Series 0'' planes, its fellow stablemates are the M.C 200 and Re 2000, both build around the same 860 HP redial engine and having the same armament.

Generally for low tier planes like the G.50 3000-4000 meters is generally enough, from there, the way of flying should be dedicated by the situation and opponents. Its good acceleration in dives and respectable dive speeds means it can be used as a Pure Boom and Zoomer, especially when you realize its energy retention is better then that of many other planes at its BR. However, it is a decent turnfighter, barring the poor acceleration, so it can be used as such as well. Be warned on regular biplanes and Japanese monoplanes.

The Fiat G.50 Freccia is a typical Italian pre war design, its fairly sturdy, has modest speed and poor armament consisting of 2 Breda SAFAT 12.7mm guns mounted in the upper cowling, which means it has the distinctive low rate of fire (roughly 400 rounds per minutes). However it does have its merits as well, its fairly agile, it has no trouble dogfighting Hurricanes it will commonly face, and if things become too hectic, the G.50 can quickly escape by going into a dive, and exploit its surprisingly good dive acceleration to gain separation. Furthermore it pays to be aware of its modest acceleration and overheating, as such, its generally advised to maintain an eye on your speed and use WEP sparingly.

 +
For the armament, 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. 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.

Description

The G.50 AS serie 7 (Germany) in the garage


The ▀G.50 Freccia AS serie 7 is a Rank I gift German fighter 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 G.50 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. The Fiat G.50 is the oldest of the Series 0 planes, its fellow stablemates are the M.C 200 and Re 2000, both build around the same 860 HP redial engine and having the same armament.

The G.50 AS serie 7 (Germany) can be outfitted with the following ordinance:

Usage in the battles

In general, it is a slightly worse version of the M.C 200, and as such, it very much flies the same, albeit a little bit slower. With its decent rate of climb, its generally best to ensure you have proper altitude to play around with first. Generally for low tier planes like the G.50 3000-4000 meters is generally enough, from there, the way of flying should be dedicated by the situation and opponents. Its good acceleration in dives and respectable dive speeds means it can be used as a Pure Boom and Zoomer, especially when you realize its energy retention is better then that of many other planes at its BR. However, it is a decent turnfighter, barring the poor acceleration, so it can be used as such as well. Be warned on regular biplanes and Japanese monoplanes. Both of which are considerably better, bar high speeds, where the stiffness of controls on the G.50 are less than on either biplanes or Japanese planes.

The Fiat G.50 Freccia is a typical Italian pre war design, its fairly sturdy, has modest speed and poor armament consisting of 2 Breda SAFAT 12.7mm guns mounted in the upper cowling, which means it has the distinctive low rate of fire (roughly 400 rounds per minutes). However it does have its merits as well, its fairly agile, it has no trouble dogfighting Hurricanes it will commonly face, and if things become too hectic, the G.50 can quickly escape by going into a dive, and exploit its surprisingly good dive acceleration to gain separation. Furthermore it pays to be aware of its modest acceleration and overheating, as such, its generally advised to maintain an eye on your speed and use WEP sparingly.

For the armament, the same applies to all other Italian aircraft; generally you want to use TracersAnti-air or Stealth since they are the belts that deal the most damage.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good Visibility from the cockpit.
  • Decent rate of climb.
  • Good acceleration in a dive.
  • High maximum dive speed.
  • Decent high speed handling.
  • Good dogfighter.

Cons:

  • Modest armament.
  • Poor acceleration in level flight.
  • Overheating is a issue.
  • Guns deal very little damage at long range.
  • Modest speed.

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.

Read also

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example,

  • reference to the series of the aircraft;
  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.
