Although it had a radial engine, the German Focke-Wulf Fw 190 was one of the most beautifully proportioned fighters of World War II. The pride of Marshall Goering, the Fw 190 maintained superiority over the British Spitfire V for almost two years because it could out fly its opponent on nearly every count. Approximately 20,000 Focke-Wulfs were produced and, in various versions, were used as day and night fighters, fighter-bombers and in ground attack roles. One feature of the Fw 190 was its wide track under carriage, which gave it, improved ground stability over the Messerschmitt Bf-109s.
