Description
This is the Macchi C.205 or "Veltro" download for Combat Flight Simulator 1, here is some background info from wikipedia.org

[quote]The Macchi C.205 (also known as MC.205, "MC" standing for "Macchi Castoldi") Veltro (Italian: Greyhound) was an Italian World War II fighter aircraft built by the Aeronautica Macchi. Along with the Reggiane Re.2005 and Fiat G.55, the Macchi C.205 was one of the three "Serie 5" Italian fighters built around the powerful Daimler-Benz DB 605 engine. The C.205 was a development of the earlier C.202 Folgore.

Although the Macchi C.205 Veltro was able to match the best Allied opponents in speed and maneuverability, it was introduced late in the conflict. Due to poor industrial capability, only a small production run was delivered before the end of the war; "...like the Spitfire, the Veltro was tricky (in its construction), and thus slow, to build." "With a top speed of some 400 mph and equipped with a pair of 20 mm cannons as well as 12.7 mm Breda machine guns, the C.205 was highly respected by Allied and Luftwaffe pilots alike. In action they proved to be extremely effective, destroying a large number of Allied bombers and successfully tackling the formidable P-51D Mustang. Italy's highest scoring ace, Adriano Visconti, achieved 11 of his 26 victories in the few weeks he was able to fly on the Veltro, with the top scoring Veltro pilot Sergente Maggiore Luigi Gorrini shooting down 14 enemy aircraft plus six damaged with the C.205.[/quote]
