In my opinion, it is useful to put together a list of the most interesting details from trusted sources that I've come across. Here are 6 of the best facts about Fw 190 I managed to collect.

  1. Major George Preddy, America's top P-51 ace during WWII and well on his way to becoming the top Ace overall, was shot down on Christmas day in 1945 by American AAA. Him and his wing man went down "on the deck"to engage a lone Focke-Wulf Fw 190. The AAA missed the 190 and struck him instead.

  2. During ww2, the germans designed a special heavily armored version of the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 fighter plane called the 'Sturmböcke' (battering ram) to combat the US B-17 'flying fortress' bomber.

  3. American pilot Robert S. Johnson, whose P-47 was attacked by an Fw 190 that hit him with 21 20 mm exploding shells. He was later attacked by another Fw 190 flown by an ace who emptied *all* of his machine gun bullets into Johnson's plane. Johnson survived and was able to land.
