-The Fiat G-50 was one of the game's most difficult aircraft to modify to correct specifications. The CoD engine has designated that it shares the engine of the BR-20M, while in fact they were equipped with different types, the G-50 had the Fiat A-74/38 and the BR20M had the A-80. One was a 14 cylinder Radial, the other was an 18 cylinder. Both had different boost levels and maximum rpms.+The Fiat G50 was one of the game's most difficult aircraft to modify to correct specifications.

 The aircraft has an air-cooled Radial engine. Air Louvre shutters are opened or closed by the pilot to regulate the temperature of the engine cylinder heads. The cylinder heads can be monitored by a single gauge on the dash, a selector switch on the right of the dash determines which pair of cylinders has its temperature displayed on the gauge. The aircraft has an air-cooled Radial engine.
