    I have come across references to this test but have never seen a translation. Is there one?

    For the flight test, a Ju87prop was used to replace the original damaged Fw190 prop but there are those that say this is impossible but they never give a reason. Why would this be impossible?

    Thanks

    Never heard of it, but it does sound interesting.

    Details of Fw 190s tested by the Soviet Union, including this one, can be found in German Aircraft in the Soviet Union and Russia, Yefim Gordon and Sergey Komissarow. Ian Allan Publishing ISBN 978-1-85780-292-4.

    Hello Milosh
    a brief high points of Soviet reports on Soviet tests on 190s can be found in FlyPast Sept 97 p. 28. The article, the second and concluding part of the series of articles on Soviet testing of German a/c was written by Gordon and Rybak. Soviets were not overly impressed on tested A-4, -5 and -8.

    Thanks Claidemore
    I have seen the film years ago, one of my frieds had a collection of Soviet educational films for pilots. It clearly shows that Soviets had some good training aids.

    Thanks guys.:occasion5:

    Any ideas why the prop from a Ju-87 couldn't be fitted to the Fw190A. All I can think of the prop shaft splines don't match.

    Can you give me a link please to this test, in guenine form? I dont deed for a translation.

    I'm not a FW -190 specialist, but it had a 3.2 -3.3 m VDM diameter prop and the Ju-87 a > 3.5 m one, AFAIK.

    Regards.

    Can't do VG. Sorry was badly worded. Should have said people making reference to this test.

    On the prop, no one says which Ju prop was used (fat or skinny). I can see the prop diameter might be a problem but the Fw took off and landed in a 3 point attitude so the likelihood of a prop striking the ground would be minimal from the extra 4" of radius.

    it is impossible to shoot of blades in a Fw190. It landed with engine on hence the curved blades all 3 blades are bended inwards as in a belly landing.

    German Aircraft in the Soviet Union and Russia, Yefim Gordon and Sergey Komissarov (page 91):

    According to some reports, the damaged propeller was replaced by an airscrew from a Junkers Ju 87 at the 1st Repair Depot in Leningrad prior to transfer to NII VVS.

    I find it a bit strange, as Ju-87 was powered by a Ju-211 engine. Ju-88/Do-217 would make more sense, as its the same engine (BMW 801).

    The VVS probably didn't have an undamaged BMW801 propellor available. Otherwise that's what they would have used.
