Aviation Classics - - AVIATION -

This chap­ter gives de­tails of the ba­sic char­ac­ter­is­tics of the 10 Fw 190A types man­u­fac­tured but for each type there were al­ter­na­tive ver­sions pro­duced, usu­ally in small num­bers or as one-offs, at the fac­tory.th­ese were in­di­cated by a ‘U’ num­ber, such as Fw 190A-8/U1. Some only ex­isted as pro­pos­als. In ad­di­tion, most of the Fw 190A types were sup­ported with Rüst­satz con­ver­sion kits that could be fit­ted in the field. When added to a stan­dard air­craft, al­ter­ing its char­ac­ter­is­tics, they were re­ferred to in the type’s des­ig­na­tion us­ing an ‘R’ num­ber, such as Fw 190A-4/R6. Here are all the Fw 190A Um­bau mod­i­fi­ca­tions and Rüst­satz kits. Where a num­ber is miss­ing, e.g. Fw 190A-4/R3, ei­ther that des­ig­na­tion was never al­lo­cated or it is sim­ply un­known to what it may have re­ferred.
