FW-190 references

Post by Kugelblitz » 16 Sep 2003 05:11

I need the following info about the FW-190 A series:

1) Paint schemme references and markings
2) Detailed references on different versions (A-5, A-6, A-7, etc)
3) Detailed info about the armament they carry, like external MK-103 or internal MK-108 canons, aswell bombs and other devices.

Any book references will be usefull, also any web sites will be welcome.

Hi Kugelblitz, German aces of the Russian front contains good b/w photos colour plates and line drawings of various types of Fw190 and Bf109.It's an interesting read too.I got it because I play Flight sims.Osprey also have a book specifically about the 190,I think it's called;from production to frontline.Check out their site for further details.Hope this helps you.

Check this out:

I have an old copy of this book (FW-190 In Action) [copyright 1975] which gives all the info you're looking for. It's excellent.

an Fw 190 reference

Peter Rodieke's Fw 190A, D and Ta 152 produced by Struve Druck Verlag from Eutin Germany. Say no more as this is the best overall reference you can own.

Also an old title but still useful, Fw 190 by Alfred Price, and also Fw 190 by Heinz Nowarra though the book has a few errors....

maybe check my old web-site by typing into your search engine Sturmgruppen.

from here go to the old pages at compuserve.com under web-master Neil Page. You will still find some good historical and photo reference of the 3 Sturmgruppen with the heavy Fw 190A-8/R-2 and R-8 variant still available.

We will re-open the site maybe by Christmas.

Forget the old notion of the external Mk 103 3cm weapons as they were never used in combat ops....
