As an answer to a 5 January 1938 request by the Regia Aeronautica for a MC.200 replacement, Aermacchi proposed the MC.201, with a revised fuselage, an Isotta-Fraschini Astro A.140RC.40 (license variant of the French Gnome-et-Rhone GR.14Krs Mistral Major) with 870hp engine. That was later changed to the Fiat A.76 R.C.40 engine with 750 kW (1,000 hp). Two prototypes were ordered. The first flew on 10 August 1940, with the less powerful Fiat A74 engine. Although Macchi estimated a top speed of 550 km/h (340 mph), the production was cancelled after Fiat abandoned the troublesome A.76 engine
