The Focke Wulf Fw 190D was considered the Luftwaffe’s best piston fighter of WWII, the answer to a 1942 Luftwaffe requirement for a high-altitude fighter. The Fw 190D-9 was flown by such famous Luftwaffe pilots as Gerhard Barkhorn and Josef Priller.
Designed by Kurt Tank, the Fw-190A was first flown on June 1st, 1939. This small, yet ferociously-powered aircraft was fast and maneuverable and packed a fierce armament package earning it the nickname “Butcher Bird”. The wide landing gear, excellent visibility and high-altitude paddle-bladed propeller endeared it to pilots familiar with the shortcomings of its predecessor – the Messerschmitt Bf 109. Some of the Luftwaffe’s most famous fighter aces flew the Fw 190. Many variants were produced during the war, with the most notable being the inline-engine equipped and longer-nosed 190D, known as the “Dora.”
