Photographer's Remark

Described as the best Italian WWII fighter to serve in large numbers, the Folgore was a development of the MC.200 with a Daimler-Benz DB 601 engine. It was armed with only two heavy machine guns though. The Serie VII had a wing suitable for two more light machine guns but these were rarely fitted. Photo from: San Diego Air & Space Museum
