    Default Peroid photo-FW190s

    A couple weeks ago, I was given an envelope with some old
    negatives in it. So today I scanned some of them and found
    this one which looks like a couple of shot up FW190s and a
    Bi-plane in the back ground.

    This were taken by a member of the US 104th Inf.
    I am guessing by the other photos, it was right at war's end.

    Interesting photo. The aircraft on the left is a Focke-Wulf Ta 152, not sure which exact model, but i'm guessing the high altitude fighter/interceptor type rather than the ground attack or recon models. Only just over 40 of all 3 types were delivered to the Luftwaffe by war's end so it's a rare bird.

    Regards, Ned.

    I thought it might be a TA-152 but in the photos I've
    seen, the TA-152 had a straighter nose on it while
    the FW190 has the hump just in front of the windscreen.

    That's the sliding cockpit canopy that's been removed and placed on the cowling.

    May I make a correction?

    They are Fw-190 D9s "Lang Nose Dora". The Ta-152 has a longer nose, and longer thin wings.

    Another distinctive difference are the armaments.

    Fw-190 D9: 2 x 13mm forward firing MGs, 2 x 20mm Wing Cannons.

    Ta-152: 1 x 30mm Propeller Cannon, 2 x 20mm Wing Cannons.

    The aircraft in the far back is a single engined Hs-126 Recon-bomber.

    You're welcome, Greg.

    I was a plastic model collector before getting into actual militaria.

    I stand corrected, you're quite right Taka, just lifted this shot off the net and it's clearly the same, my apologies to all!
