The Fiat G.50 was the first all metal monoplane fighter for the Regia Aeronuatica and was a typical transition aircraft. Its final design reflected the preference of RA pilots for unrestricted view. This requirement brought about the "hump" characteristic to the "Arrow" and to the Macchi C.200. Its service record was good, and the design would eventually lead to the Fiat G.55, one of the best fighters of WWII. In the hands of the Finns, the G.50 sported a 50-1 kill ratio against the Soviets.
