Despite entering service late in the war, the Italian MC.205 “Veltro” found itself clashing in fierce combat with the most advanced allied aircraft over the skies of Italy - and holding it’s own. Meet one of the finest Italian fighter aircraft of the Second World War in War Thunder’s Update 1.69!
By 1941, the well-established MC.202 “Folgore” fighter had started to show the first signs of its aging design compared to the much newer, more advanced, allied counterparts. Almost immediately, Italian engineers took up the task to find ways of improving the existing Folgore airframes in order to create a new stop-gap fighter before better designs could be created. The result of this undertaking was the phenomenal MC.205 “Veltro”.
In short, the MC.205 Veltro will form the backbone of the newly formed Italian research tree and will provide its pilots with a solid dogfighter, capable of confidently combating any foe in battle. Be the first to try out the new aircraft in War Thunder’s Update 1.69! See you there!
