The Ma.202 Folgore "just" needs code, animations and...everything except the model and textures.  The Static can already be seen on Hyacinth.  Although where it would flown...  Gazala?  Replace one of the 109s?  There's already Italian Tanks on that map.
and El Ala I guess

From what I know and thats some vague memories about something I saw on YT or read in a book a long time ago it was a pretty good plane. The engine is a Daimler-Benz, same one as in the 109 and the aerodynamics are all ok so it was quick, agile and it's weapons seem to be all ok for me to.

Actually, the only thing wrong with Folgore was that it was under-armed.  It basically had the equivalent of 2 .50 cal/12.7mm MGs, except they were underpowered compared to other weapons of the same caliber.  However, those 2 MGs were centerline, so the pilots didn't have to worry about gun convergence.  Later models added a .303 cal/7.7mm MG in each wing, which added weight, but only marginally better firepower (they were obviously less powerful than the centerline 12.7mms, and had to deal with convergence, but more guns is more guns...).  Most pilots actually preferred to leave the 7.7 mm MGs out, to save on weight.

is this italian Machinegun in?

it is the Fiat-Revelli Modello 1935
used from 1937 to 1945
8x59mm RB Breda
750 m/s (2,460 ft/s) muzzle velocity
range 1000 meters
feed system normally a 300 round belt



it's a typical heavy MG cause i can't really say a gun that weights 17 kilos to be light heh they're called heavy for a reason and italian heavy MGs are no exception

also i found this strange revolver wich was used in WW1 and WW2 by the italians
Bodeo Model 1889

note that it doesen't have a fingershield and the trigger can be folded and unfolded.
it's double action and well....only the US and the GB and USSR has been seen using revolvers in FH, shouldnt the italians also be allowed to use them?

No its not, and it prob won't be for a very long time.  Italian Army is not a focus point right now for the mod.  Devs are in normandy.

they already have a pistol and a machine gun. what they need is to get rid of the placeholders (trucks, at&aa guns) btw I'm unable to find wich mines were most common, wikipedia has a bunch of them (both ap&at) but no production numbers

Folgore's where very competitive aircraft. They could keep up with allied aircraft well unto the end of war. But their Firepower was its weakness.
is this italian Machinegun in?



Shamefully it issent, but it should be. It was one of the few good Machine guns the italians had.
