NEW! MSFS2020 - Flight Simulator Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Freeware Aircraft - V.1.0 [Working Cockpit]

The Focke-Wulf Fw 190, nicknamed Würger[b] ("Shrike") is a German single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank at Focke-Wulf in the late 1930s and widely used during World War II. Along with its well-known counterpart, the Messerschmitt Bf 109, the Fw 190 became the backbone of the Jagdwaffe (Fighter Force) of the Luftwaffe. The twin-row BMW 801 radial engine that powered most operational versions enabled the Fw 190 to lift larger loads than the Bf 109, allowing its use as a day fighter, fighter-bomber, ground-attack aircraft and to a lesser degree, night fighter. 

Fw 190 A-4: introduced in July 1942, the A-4 was the same aircraft as the A-3. The main improvement was the water-methanol power boost system "MW 50" for the BMW 801 engine. The system injected for a short period of time a water-methanol mix into the cylinders to raise the engine's power limit. The methanol was intended as anti-freeze. The Fw 190 A-4 went into production in late 1942 and 975 units were produced in 1942 and 1943.

It was the first Fw 190 to see combat on the Eastern front in 1942 thanks to its water-methanol power boost system.
The tropical variant of the A-4 was sent in Libya to support the Afrika Korps in 1942.
The first unit created to intercept USAF and RAF bomber formations in 1943 was equipped with Fw 190 A-4s.
Fighter squadrons stationed in France also received the A-4 in 1943 and used its dual role as fighter-bomber to harass English coastal towns.
