The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 was a German single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft operated by the Luftwaffe during WWII.
The Fw 190 was well liked by its pilots, some of which successful fighter aces who claimed many of their kills whilst piloting it & the aircraft was given the name Butcher Bird by the allies who first flew up against this superb machine that out performed the allied aircraft when initially introduced.
The Fw 190 along with the Bf 109 provided the back bone of the Luftwaffe's fighter aircraft but the Fw 190 was better armed with superior manoeuvrability at low to medium altitude & was regarded as one of the best fighter aircraft of WWII.
The Fw 190F-8 was a dedicated ground attack fighter-bomber variant, directly developed from the A-8 fighter powered by the BMW 801D-2 engine. The F-8 had a slightly modified injector of the compressor, allowing for increased performance at low altitudes. There were four ETC 50 under wing racks, capable to carry bombs & rockets, while the ETC 501 fuselage centreline rack could serve as provision for bombs up to 500kg.
