    Hello,
    The member Crash indicates he goes on looking for the solution, but that would not be FW190.
    Investigation is not finished indeed...

    I am of the understanding that only 3 Brewster Buffaloes made it to France in 1940 after the capitulation of Belgium, arriving on the 28th May. It has been mooted that 2 saw action against the Luftwaffe, but it has also been said that only one was ever in France, and that was captured intact by the Germans. Maybe 2 were lost in action and one captured intact, either way it's a massive summisation that the armoured glass you have is from one of these aircraft. I think your collegue 'Crash' is stretching it a bit, but hey, who knows?

    Regards, Ned.

    If I was to make a guess based on general appearance and shape I to would run with Fw-190 as Ned has.Feels right.
    Cheers

    Not mine Dave, I only do r/c tanks. As for the armoured glass, why not some French type like a Dewotine, Morane-Saulnier or my favourite for the cigar a Bloch, specifically a 152, see below ( I know it's only a drawing, but it's all I've got!) Not right maybe, but a better bet than a Buffalo....I still like the FW-190 guess most though!

    Regards, Ned.

    It would be interesting to research Armée de l'Air operations over Normandy in 1940.
    I feel by the time the Blitzkrieg rolled through Normandy in 1940 the Armée de l'Air was finished as a fighting force and any air combat over this region would have been minimal.
    Just a thought.

    Hello,
    On a french forum, some of the members would indicate Hawker/tempest/typhoon.
    But informatons are difficult to find about the size.
    Best regards.

    Ned, well founded arguments for it to be a FW and not a Bf 109...or any of the others mentioned
