Focke Wulf Fw 190by Malcolm Lowe
Arguably Germany's best piston-engined fighter of the war, the Fw 190 remained in the vanguard of the German war effort from late 1941 until VE-Day. With in excess of 20,000 examples being constructed in dedicated factories and dispersed sites across Germany and eastern Europe, the Fw 190 proved its worth both as a fighter interceptor and a fighter-bomber. This volume describes the production processes involved in constructing the legendary Focke-Wulf fighter, tracing the airframe from factory floor to the frontline on the Channel coast and the Crimean plains. Chapters on the aircraft's powerplant, armament and late war development into the superlative Fw 190D and Ta 152 are all included, as is a detailed appendices listing the various production batches. Profusely illustrated with a hand-picked selection of both official company photographs and wartime archival imagery, this book is a must for Luftwaffe enthusiasts, hobbyists and historians alike.
