Picture of Macchi MC-200 Saetta WW2 Fighter

The Macchi MC-200 Saetta 'Lightning' WWII interceptor was designed by Mario Castoldi for the Italian Regia Aeronautica, entering active service in 1939 just one year after it's maiden flight. The Saetta was to see active service throughout World War Two , finally being withdrawn by the Regia Aeronautica in 1947 by which time 1,153 aircraft had been built. Although a sound design in 1938, lack of power and insufficient armament was  eventually to make the Macchi MC-200 Saetta "Lightning", an otherwise excellent design, obsolete as later WW2 fighter designs advanced in performance almost monthly during WWII, the Saetta had very few and minor design alterations.
