... ’ The Focke - Wulf 190 was designed to be built by a great number of small sub - assemblers. We designed it with ease of maintenance in mind, plus quick replacement of entire sections. It was a sturdy machine and extremely versatile. Although conceived as a fighter, it did double duty as an attack bomber and, in fact, throughout most of the war, was the only reliable, light attack bomber we possessed in numbers. ’
These words from Dipl. Ing. Kurt Tank, chief designer and technical director of the Focke - Wulf Flugzeugbau, provide a fitting epitaph for the Focke - Wulf 190, an aircraft considered by many aviation experts and enthusiasts to be the most beautifully proportioned and aerodynamically designed aircraft of World War II. It is, however, but a fraction of the Focke - Wulf 190 story.
