The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 was the brainchild of the highly talented aircraft designer Kurt Tank, which eventually became the mainstay of the Luftwaffe; both as a fighter and a fighter/ bomber. When the Fw 190 first went into service in May 1941, it was superior in many respects to the then current versions of the Messerschmitt Bf 109 and Vickers Supermarine Spitfire.
In fact, the introduction of the Fw 190 directly led to the development of a more powerful version of the Spitfire, namely the Mk.IX (also a DCS module), which was specifically designed to counter the Fw 190 threat. This is the second time Eagle Dynamics has modelled an Fw 190; their first simulation was the long-nose Fw 190 D-9 Dora, released in 2014. Now the company has decided to add an earlier version of this exciting aircraft to the DCS World War Two hangar in the form of the Fw 190A-8.
