The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-6 is a German fighter aircraft widely used during World War II.  The Fw 190 formed the backbone, along with the Messerschmitt Bf 109, of Luftwaffe’s fighter force. Developed to address the shortcomings of previous versions, the Fw 190 A-6’s armament was increased to four 20mm MG 151/20E, along with external pods if needed, to pack a heavier punch against U.S heavy bombers. As such, a structurally redesigned lighter, stronger wing was introduced for the A-6 version. .

The Fw 190 proved superior over Allied fighters until the introduction of improved British Spitfires. The Fw 190’s production and service continued throughout World War II with 2 later introduced versions and a specially designed high altitude version known as the Ta 152.  day fighter, fighter-bomber, ground-attack aircraft and to a lesser degree, night fighter.

The Fw 190, well liked by its pilots, proved to be a successful platform for the Luftwaffe’s most successful fighter aces like Otto Kittel, Walter Nowotny and Erich Rudorffer.
