    Came across a thread on another board where a poster said that the Fw190A-9 was the predominate Fw190A in Luftwaffe service in 1945.

    This seems hard to believe when for the time period that 910 Fw190A-9s were built there was 2845 Fw190A-8s built.

    Does anyone have the breakdown of how many Fw190A-8s and Fw190A-9s were in service with the Luftwaffe for each month of 1945?

    Like you I doubt that.
    I'll see what I can find.

    Thanks Steve.

    I should have added the the guy won't back up his statement with data.

    Unless lots of A-8 were re-engined with the 801S or even the 801F this statement by Crumpp is wrong.
    129 A-9 vs 628 A-8 delivered to Luftflotten in 45 (delivery data from March on may be inaccurate/missing, Bundesarchive data has just 35 A-8 )
