Undoubtedly the best fighter available in some quantity to the Regia Aeronautica at beginning of the war, the Macchi C.200 was a robust, extremely maneuverable and a reasonably fast monoplane. Designed by ing. Mario Castoldi, the winner of various Schneider Trophy contests, the C.200 was generally liked by its pilots and many Regia Aeronautica pilots would earn ace status flying this plane. The MC.200 would eventually be developed into the potent MC.202.
