Beefing up the bullets

The Folgore helped eliminate the Italian Air Forces shortcomings, but the Italians knew they were still not packing enough. Their solution was to equip a redesigned C.202 airframe with a powerful new DB 605 engine, two 50cal machine guns and two 20mm cannons. With that much muscle behind it, the Veltro was considered by its designers to be a match for the P-51 Mustang. Unfortunately for the Italians, they simply couldn't get enough Veltros in the air. Only 262 were produced. Kit features six sets of decals from before and after the armistice.
