MC202 used a licensed build DB601a

its speed was better than an Emil , little bit slower than a Friedrich.
should turn better.

Mc205 and G.55 used licensed build DB605a

performnace close to Bf109G2 i guess. should also turn better.

This is waht I found in my books (D.Monday's "Axis A/C of WW2"):

MC.200 Saetta
Powerplant: 870hp (649kw) Fiat A.74 RC.38 14-cylinder radial piston engine.
Max.Speed: 312mph (502kmh)
Range (with aux tanks): 540miles (870km)

MC.202 Folgore
Powerplant: 1175hp (876kw) Alfa-Romeo RA.1000 RC.41-I Monsone 12-cylinder inverted Vee piston engine.
Max.Speed: 370mph (595kmh)
Range: 475miles (765km)

MC.205 Veltro
Powerplant: 1475hp (1100kw) Fiat RA.1050 RC.58 Tifone 12-cylinder inverted Vee piston engine.
Max.Speed: 399mph (642kmh)
Range: 646miles (1040km)

Re.2000
Powerplant: 1475hp (1100kw) Fiat RA.1050 RC.Tifone 12-cylinder inverted Vee piston engine.
Max.Speed: 391mph (630kmh)
Range: 786miles (1265km)

Fiat G.55 Centauro
Powerplant: 1475hp (1100kw) Fiat RA 1050 RC.58 Tifone (licence-built DB 605A) 12-cylinder inverted Vee piston engine.
Max.Speed: 391mph (630kmh)
Range: 746miles (1200km)

About German engines I don't know what are the performance of these birds with DB's. The only one with this engine specification is Centauro, but since the same engine was used in Re.2000 and Veltro I suppose that were also DB's replicas.

That book that I was reffering in my previous post does not seem to be 100%accurate in data...(?). Some numbers are just innacurate. Hm, well maybe it is time to get myself a new one (there you see a good excuse http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ).

Franky if you got some good book about axis planes please reccomend.
