French Dewoitine D.520 captured and used by the Germans. This aircraft came into service in January of 1940 and was designed with good climbing speed and a 20mm canon. These aircraft came a little too late to face the German Invasion. They were still being made after the occupation for the Vichy forces as well as Italy and Bulgaria.
