The Fiat G.50 Freccia (Italian for an arrow) is an Italian fighter plane with an all-metal low wing structure from the Second World War. Research work on the G.50 began in 1935, and the flight of the prototype took place on February 26, 1937. Entry to the linear units began a year later. The drive was a Fiat A.74 RC38 838HP engine. The G.50 was the first Italian low-wing fighter with a retractable landing gear. Although it was very maneuverable, it was definitely slower and less armed than British planes such as the Hawker Hurricane. A total of 784 Fiat G.50 machines were produced, 35 of which were exported to Finland, where they performed excellently during the final stage of the Winter War (1939-1940) and at the beginning of the aggression against the USSR (1941-1943). However, due to the introduction of more modern fighters by the Soviets, in 1944 it was withdrawn from line service. In Regio Aeronautica, on the other hand, he fought primarily in North Africa and the Mediterranean.
