The best Italian fighters of WWII used German engines. The M.C.205V was a development of the MC.202, powered by the Daimler Benz DB605 instead of the DB601, and armed with 20mm cannon. It was intended as an interim fighter. The M.C.205 was an effective fighter at low and medium altitudes, but only 262 were built. After the war, 42 were delivered to Egypt, and these were used in the war with Israel of 1948-1949.
