The Focke-Wulf FW-190 Würger (Shrike) was a German single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s and widely used during World War II.
The FW-190 D (nicknamed the Dora) was intended to improve on the high-altitude performance of the A-series enough to make it useful against the American heavy bombers. However, the circumstances of the war in late 1944 meant that fighter-versus-fighter combat and ground attack missions took priority.
Franz Götz was a German Luftwaffe fighter ace and recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross during World War II. This award was to recognise extreme battlefield bravery or successful military leadership. Franz Götz was the last Geschwaderkommodore (wing commander) of the renowned Jagdgeschwader 26 "Schlageter".
