035106 - MACCHI C.205 VELTRO (MMP Orange Series)
By Przemyslaw Skulski, Illustrated By Andrzej Olejniczak
This detailed monograph covers the design and development of the Macchi C.205 Veltro (Italian for Greyhound), the main WWII production variant of this classic Italian fighter aircraft built by the Aeronautica Macchi. While the C.205 was able to match the best Allied opponents in speed and manoeuvrability, it was introduced late in the conflict. Owing to the limitations of the Italian war economy, only a small production run was delivered before the end of the war. Features include comprehensive technical details, production and service photographs, scale plans, illustrations from official manuals, a wide range of colour profiles and rare colour photographs from WWII.
