Fw-190S Trainer
« on: April 22, 2013, 07:09:14 PM »

Can we have one of these in IL-2 1946?? "With opening Canopies??

As the Luftwaffe phased out older aircraft such as the Ju 87, and replaced them with the Fw 190, many pilots required flight training to make the transition as quickly and smoothly as possible. Thus was born the Schulflugzeug (literally "school airplane") training version of the Fw 190. Several old Fw 190 A-5s, and later in 1944, A-8s, were converted by replacing the MW 50 tank with a second cockpit. The canopy was modified, replaced with a new three section unit, which opened to the side, similar to the Bf 109. The rear portion of the fuselage was closed off with sheet metal. Originally designated Fw 190 A8-U1, they were later given the Fw 190 S-5 and S-8 designation. There were an estimated 58 Fw 190 S-5 and S-8 models converted or built.

Only one trainer version is known to exist today. It is pictured here at RAF St Athan and now resides at the RAF Museum, Hendon.

Nice photoshop skills yo! It looks amazing, so does the real aircraft's pics. I wonder if one of ALL luftwaffe aircrafts had dual seats as trainers, that means One Bf-109, Fw-190, etc...
