   Одноместный ударный вариант Saeta обозначался HA-220, его эксплуатация в ВВС Испании началась в 1971-1972 годах как C.10. На HA-220 установили более мощный двигатель и пилоны для подвески вооружения. Для ВВС Испании построено 110 самолетов HA-200 и HA-220. После снятия Saeta с вооружения часть самолетов раскупили энтузиасты авиации - в 2011 году в пригодном к полетам состоянии находилось 15 самолетов.

Prototype HA-200E with civil registration for the Le Bourget airshow June 19-20, 1965.
For most of their service, C/A.10Cs were operated in an irregular camouflage scheme, which differed considerably from one aircraft to another. This scheme was unique within EdA aircraft.
On April 19, 1978, a new directive was issued calling for a new camouflage scheme similar to that of the F/RF-5A/Bs. In the event, the type's withdrawal prevented the whole A.10C fleet being painted, and only six or seven aircraft received the new camouflage. At least three of four A.10Bs also were seen wearing this camouflage scheme.

Still wearing the C.10C-1 tail code, the first HA-220 shows the later camouflage scheme, roughly similar to that applied to the whole C.10C series.
Two LAU-32Bs were often carried on the underwing pylons. Despite their similarity, the pylons in the picture were in fact of two different models.
MATAC's Escuadron 214, one of the component squadrons of Ala 21 at Moron, is primarily equipped with the HA-220 Super Saeta, two of which are seen here, but it is anticipated that this type will give place to an armed version of the CASA C-101 Aviojet in the mid-'eighties.

C.10C-102 shows the camouflage scheme that differed considerably from one aircraft to another. Perhaps it blended well with the Andalusian landscape.

On the last day of 214 Escuadron's existence, five A.10Cs made a final flyby over the Moron parking ramp.

In 1982, to commemorate the presence of HA-220 at Moron for almost five years, A.10B-52 was placed on a pole at the air base.
First production HA-220, C.10C-1 in a short-lived non-standard camouflage scheme, soon changed to the usual olive green and tan.

C.10C-96, one of the first HA-220s delivered to 214 Escuadron, was also one of the first aircraft of the type to receive unit markings.
Deliveries of the Hispano HA-220 Super Saeta single-seat light ground attack aircraft to the Ejercito del Aire began recently, the first batch of 10 aircraft built against an order for 25 aircraft of this type being seen in this photograph.

Passing along a mountain during a low-level mission, A.10C-108 wears the last camouflage scheme, which was applied to only six or seven aircraft owing to the imminence of the type's passing out.
