Fw-190 and Ta-152 ideas and inspiration

Hi folks,

A thread for Fw-190 and Ta-152 ideas.

Here's one to start with.

Following the success of the Bf-109Y (see here),  Focke-wulf were asked to try something similar with the Fw-190.  The result wasn't as successful.  Not finding favour in the fighter role the resulting Fw-190B-2 was turned into a ground attack aircraft to replace the Ju-87 and Hs-129.  A single staffel of Schlachtgeschwader 2 (SG 2) Immelmann trialed 12 during early 1943.  However, although the load carrying and endurance was liked, pilots reported that the aircraft was simply too unwieldy for use at low level and they were withdrawn after 3 months.



Regards,

Greg

Following the failure of Fw-190B-2 ground attack aircraft, Focke-Wulf started afresh. The resulting Fw-190C-1 was far more successful.  In addition to being able to carry a massive payload, this time a tail gunner was also incorporated - this being at the request of front-line crews who found that rear defence was essential in the CAS/Ground attack role.
