The Focke-Wulf Fw190 was Germany’s most lethal fighter of WWII. The Fw190A-series of aircraft were some of the finest aircraft of their time.
From its inception into the air war over Europe against Spitfires of the RAF; to the vast, cold plains of Russia; to the high altitudes suicidal interception of 4-engined bombers, the Fw190A-series of aircraft brought fear to the Allied pilots.
Though probably not the best of the Fw190-series, the Fw190A-series was by far the beloved of the Fw190 series.
