The Macchi C.200 Saetta, or MC.200, was a fighter aircraft developed and manufactured by Aeronautica Macchi in Italy. The C. 200 flew more operational sorties than any other Italian aircraft.
Alongside the Fiat CR.42 biplane, the Macchi C-200 formed the backbone of the Italian Royal Air Force in 1940, and was soon involved escorting bombers in raids against the island fortress of Malta. It later saw action in Albania and Greece, where it acquitted itself surprisingly well against British hurricanes.
The MC-200 also saw service in north Africa and on the southern flank in Russia. But by 1942 its moderate performance was proving totally inadequate and it was progressively used in the fighter / bomber role.
