Focke Wulf Fw 190 

Perhaps the most feared of all German World War II fighters, Focke Wulf's extraordinary Fw 190 was a fearsome and deadly opponent. Fast, extremely agile, and well armed, the Fw 190 was a match for any Allied fighter in the sky, particularly in its later versions. Somewhat resembling the United States' Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, the Fw 190 was smaller, lighter, and
aerodynamically more refined. Surprisingly, the Fw 190 was not built by any other country after the war, unlike its Messerschmitt Me 109 stablemate. Few Fw 190s survive today and none are known to be flyable.
