Hello,as you see I´m new in the forum, hehehe . I was looking for this: Can someone provide the specifications about the FW 190 A9 and F9?. It´s a pretty airplane but very little known about this.Thanks in advance
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.
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.
