Was wondering if the DB605 engine was ever mounted on the FW-190?
(before the Jumo 213 was thought of?)
Seems like an easy way to add a 20mm or 30mm cannon to the FW-190, while reducing drag.
Making the FW-190 better at shooting down 4 engine heavy bombers.
The Ta152C also had the Db603 engine, but i've never seen any with a Db605.
The DB 605 engine was never considered for the Fw 190. From the Fw 190 A-0 pre-production, the only engine considered for the high altitude was the DB 603.
