    check google search engine

    the difference is that the F-9 is that the underbelley was armored unlike the fighter version A-9. More powerful engine thatn the A-8 with 14 blade cooling fan. Most likely wooden prop and blown canopy. F-9 had two inborad 2cm as standard alaong with the bomb ordnance, the A-9 could be fitted with four or two 2cm weapons on the disgression of the pilot and his ground crew.

    :D heres a pic of A-9 and crewmen of I./JG 301 in November of 44. thanks to Peter Rodeike..........

    sometimes though the metal prop was used and the old standard canopy of the A-8 variant.

    A new almost tube like drop tank was also fitted on some A-9's.

    Very nice! I always thought the prop blades on the Dora almost looked fake because of their size. Those are some really fat blades!

    these are most probably wooden which did increase power boost. Fitted first to A-8's, especially SturmFw's

    One of the benefits of the wooden prop, which the Brits used on the Mk. XIV Spitfire, was that in the event of a wheels up landing, the prop blades break off, as opposed to bending like the metal ones and put less stress on the engine. Metal blades will assure a serious messed up engine in that event.

    Thanks a lot for your interest! It´s a lot of information.
    Another question: I read about the fact that the model A9, having a turbosupercharged engine, (the TU/TS) capable of 2000/2270 hp was able to catch some 680 Km/h at 10000 m, is this true?. Thanks in advance, and best regards.

    Im not good in metric but I think 680 kmh is about 420-425 mph...I think the A-9 could do that, yeah 8)

    I read some where that the Ta-152 had 2 foot wide blades, which is pretty bigski! ;)

    No doubt! They almost look like a characature of real blades because of their width. I guess they don't call them "Paddle blades" for nothing. I would imagine that they would have a distinct sound.
