I was flying a Mc.205 1943 against a Spitfire Mk.9 and as i was looking down on the instrument panel to check my speed,i realized that this fighter has an ammo counter for both machine guns and cannons below the instrument panel.

I always thought that it was there for show till i realized that when i fired my guns the #'s were started to move.

The MC.205 V Series III is among my all time favorites, I love flying this AC! I've made several mission for flying this AC against Spitfires and Warhawks on the new "online Desert" map.

It's correct. We know Veltro could reach incredible dive speed thank to its very strong structure.
I have some doubts about its performances above 8.000m...... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif, it should be really a poor fighter at that altitude, but it seems to be still competitive (in IL2) above 8.000m.

A nice C-205 movie:

I like flying this bird as well. The only real downside to it is the rear visibility.

The plane can also come as a rude shock to allied flyers due to its dive anc climb capabilities, its a heck of a good B&Z bird, and its a better turner than most allied birds, and has better accelleration.

All around good plane, but sadly neglected in all but a few online servers.

Buffalo has a similar ammo counter...

Another cool feature is the fuel-indicator in the form of a slider on the starboard side of cockpit. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

The Buff's ammo counters are for the cowling-mounted .50s only. The MC250V has them for the wing guns also, a nice and useful touch indeed.
