    Hi folks,
    read that the Fw 190A-10 was planned for March 1945 with a bigger wing . Does someone can help me with a drawing or other informations on the wings.

    thanks in advance

    Would it be powered by the BMW801 radial engine, perhaps with a bit more power? Or was this a variant of the Ta-152?

    My sources have the A-10 envisioned to be a long range fighter bomber powered by the BMW 801TS or TH engine. I don't know of a wing modification, except that it was the A-9 which was to have received an armoured wing leading edge to improve survivability for ramming.

    That sounds unlikely. Perhaps the wing leading edge armor was to improve survivability vs barrage balloon cables.

    Unlikley but true. Designs of the A-9 included armoured leading edges but this aspect never made it to the production models due to the added weight.
