Stan Stokes. One of the Luftwaffe's most impressive fighters, the Fw 190 — officially ordered into production in late 1940 — had excellent flying characteristics, a wonderful rate of acceleration, and was heavily armed. It did, however, have problems disrupting Allied bombing raids, as they generally flew at higher altitudes than the Fw 190 was comfortable. In response, the brilliant German engineer Kurt Tank developed the Fw 190D variant, also known as the "Long Nose," featuring an in-line, water-cooled engine capable of 426mph flight at 22,000 feet. This limited edition print depicts a "Long Nose" protecting the departure of an Me-262 from a lingering P-51 Mustang. Signed by the artist and General Günther Rall, a Luftwaffe pilot and the third highest-scoring ace in history with 275 victories. 16"x 11½".
