The Fw-190 Würger (Butcher Bird) is considered by many to have been the workhorse of the Luftwaffe. As WWII progressed the Fw-190 was continually modified in an attempt to keep pace with the increasingly superior performance of new Allied aircraft. The initial Fw-190A series gave way to the fighter-bomber F series, followed by the stop-gap D series, with the design culminating in one of the most beautiful and lethal fighters of WWII, the Ta-152H series. This functionally lethal stable of single seat fighters began life as a small innovative design from the relatively small company Focke-Wulf Flugzeugbau AG.
