    Default Fw-190 A-3 relics

    I have been meaning to do this for some time, but since I had a bit of time to clean up some objects and go through them, I decided why not.

    In this thread I will be posting all identified and unidentified pieces from a Fw-190 A-3.

    If you can help in any way to identify the object, that would be most helpful!

    I will also color the object number with either a red(for unidentified), yellow(I am not quite sure) and green(For identified) I will try to post a picture of the identified object each time

    Object 1:

    Description: Metal object, a bit heavy, armor?. I am not quite sure, but I think this is a piece of armored metal to protect the pilot in the cockpit, anybody who can confirm this? Anybody got a picture?

    Object 5:

    Description: This object has been bugging me all day! It resembles bomb shrapnel, but here is why it is not:
    The plane was a Fw-190 A-3(A fighter) stationed in West-Norway, why would it have a bomb, and if did have it, where would his target be? He is out of range of enemy territory.
    If there was a bomb, there would be little left of the plane. Aircraft are supposed to be as light as possible, this thing is heavy, about 0,8 cm thick and hard metal.
    And before you say "What if it is not an aircraft part", I already have the answer:
    It was found in the middle of a field, at the exact point where the plane crashed, the condition of this object is the same as all the other objects I have found. It is bent and damaged, like a crash and/or explosion. And no, the plane did not crash into a tractor.

    Please help me, this is killing me!
