Ian Allan Publishing - Focke Wulf Fw 190 Volume 3 - 1944-45

When it first appeared in the skies over France in late 1941, the pugnacious, radial-engined Focke-Wulf Fw190 represented a formidable and ominous foe to the RAF. Despite initial technical problems with the engine, as well as with the ailerons, elevators and undercarriage on the early A-1 and A-2 variants, the Fw190 soon proved itself as a dependable fighter aircraft. This stunning new volume is the third book in a comprehensive multi-volume series on this iconic aircraft – arguably the finest pistonengined fighter aircraft of World War 2.

Continuing the story of the Fw190, this beautifully illustrated book has over 400 photographs including those showing factory and construction, close ups of weapons and equipment, operational units as well as numerous facsimiles of Focke-Wulf handbook drawings. Colour artwork is also included, plus an extensive selection of original manufacturer’s technical drawings. This book is the product of years of study by two of the leading researchers into this complex aircraft which is creating the most complete and definitive work on the Fw190 ever written. Ideal for historians and modellers alike, this volume is a must-have for every Luftwaffe enthusiast.
