Product Description

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.

Waldemar Wübke was one of the few Luftwaffe fighter pilots to survive combat duty over the entire course of the war. Along with a handful of experienced fighter pilots, Wübke flew the FW190D-9 fighter in an effort to protect the jets of the Jagdverband 44s from attack by Allied fighters during take-off. Their unit was based close to the jets at München-Riem, Germany. JV 44's unofficial unit crest was a white circle trimmed with red, with a black and white checker board in the middle, and most of the Fw190Ds used in this unit wore this emblem. Hauptmann Waldemar Wübke regularly flew the Fw190D-9 coded "Rot 3" (Red 3).

These packs include a new size of manoeuvre cards (63 x 88 mm) to handle the faster speed of this airplane.
