Macchi C.205

The Macchi C.205 Veltro was an Italian fighter plane which was essentially the earlier C.202 Folgore with an upgraded Daimler-Benz DB 605 engine rated at 1,475 horse power. The C.205 Veltro could fly at 400 mph and often defeated British Spitfires and P-38 Lightnings in combat. Two hundred sixty-two Macchi C.205s were built between September 1942 to May 1944.
