Focke-Wulf FW-190

The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Würger (Shrike) was a German Second World War single-seat, single-engine
fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s. The 190 was used by the Luftwaffe in a wide
variety of roles, including day fighter, fighter-bomber, ground-attack aircraft and, to a lesser degree,
night fighter. A formidable adversary, with it's 2 - 13 mm Machine Guns and 4 - 20 mm Cannons, the
190 was one of Germany's famed "Butcher Birds" quite capable of shooting down the Allied B-17's and
Liberators. Although more than 20,000 190's were built, less than 28 remain (with even fewer in flying
condition) today.
