FOCKE WULF 190 vs. SPITFIRE | REAL Tailchase

Focke Wulf 190 A8 flown by Klaus Plasa chasing a Supermarine Spitfire Mk.18 flown by Rob Davies.
All filmed at the Hangar 10 Fly In 2019.
Thanks to all the people who made that happen. What an awesome event!
If you wonder what engine the Fw190 has. Its an Ash 82-T 14cyl. double row radial with the power and size comparable to the original BMW 801 engine.It was build in Karl Marx Stadt/Chemnitz. So even though it`s a russian design, the engine is still a german engine, at least kind of. ;)

    • Tatters I don't know that Americans had more friendly fire incidents per-capita than other nations. It would likely be very difficult to get detailed and accurate statistics on this. Not least because there's no way that every friendly-fire incident was both recognized and recorded. Definitely the US armed forces have a better track record in being open about such incidents. Plus the Americans did deploy stupendous amounts of firepower making it more likely that a friendly-fire incident would inflict casualties. All nations had friendly fire incidents; the US didn't have an issue more so than others. What the US had was "a lot" - and the US way of fighting was to really pour on the shells, bombs, and bullets when attacking. Soviet forces and Germans generally had more constricted supply and so would be more careful - but they still had plenty of friendly fire incidents. It was recognized this happened in the fog of war, and in general, no one was punished for friendly fire. It was just seen as damned bad luck. The British and Canadians (Probably ANZAC and Indians as well) in WWII fixed their offensive doctrine around using rolling barrages to support the troops during the attack. "Leaning" into the barrage (stay as close to it as possible) was considered ideal because the Germans would be dazed when the attacking infantry arrived on top of their foxholes or trenches, thus being easy to kill or capture. Unfortunately, leaning into the barrage meant incurring friendly fire casualties, and the British estimated 7%, and possibly as high as 15%, of their total losses in North West Europe were from their own artillery. It was still considered worth it compared to the losses the Germans would inflict on troops without a supporting barrage. It's likely that the cruiser HMAS Canberra was sunk by a friendly torpedo fired by the destroyer USS Bagley *during the chaotic night battle of Savo Island as well resulting in the loss of 84 lives* The Oxford Companion to American Military History (really great book) states that the estimated casualty rate over US conflicts related to friendly fire is 2 - 2.5%, and this number is probably higher. When you consider that a surprising majority of WW1 and WW2 casualties came from artillery fire, it isn't hard to imagine that friendly fire was fairly commonplace. Other nations did certainly experience friendly-fire incidents. Off the top of my head : -The Battle of Barking Creek, 6th September 1939. Due to confusion in fighter control, poor communication and radar issues a group of RAF Spitfires attacked a group of Hurricanes over eastern England. Two Hurricanes were shot down and one pilot was killed. Another Spitfire was shot down by AA fire. The two Spitfire pilots who had opened fire were court-martialed but acquitted. Hawker Typhoons were mistaken for Fw-190s and three were shot down by Spitfires and Thunderbolts when first deployed, including squadron CO Thornton-Browne. The first Stirling bombers were regularly opened up on by ground batteries, despite being most unique in shape: but they didn;t look like anything the British gunners recognised and their job was to stop bombers. 1939 6 September - Just days after the start of the war, in what was dubbed the Battle of Barking Creek, three Royal Air Force Spitfires from 74 Squadron shot down two Hurricanes from the RAF's 56 Squadron, killing one of the pilots. One of the Spitfires was then shot down by British anti-aircraft artillery while returning to base. 10 September - The British submarine HMS Triton sank another British submarine, HMS Oxley. After making challenges which went unanswered Triton assumed it must have located a German U-boat and fired two torpedoes. Oxley was the first Royal Navy vessel to be sunk and also the first vessel to be sunk by a British vessel in the war, killing 52 with only two survivors. Both vessels were patrolling off the coast of Norway (then neutral) at the time. The incident that led to the loss of Oxley was kept in secrecy until the 1950s. 3 December 1939 - British submarine HMS Snapper sustained a direct hit from a British aircraft while returning to Harwich after a patrol in the North Sea, but without taking damage. So you see Tatters it's hardly uncommon

  • Am i right in saying that a large percentage of WW2 german aircraft that are flying today, are no more than replicas of the original designs and not fully restored ww2 models? I may be talking nonsense but I'm sure i read due to the lack of restorable airframes, this was the preferred option. For example, im sure someone is currently working on a Ju-87 which will be completely built with modern technology. Im also sure FW-190s were like Typhoons at 1 point, and there were no complete or recognisable examples left? Perhaps im just taking 2+2 and making 20. Please correct if wrong!

    • @PaddyPatrone yeah i guessed as much, i just had in my head that it was disproportionate for German warbirds due to, well the fact that many of their airframes were nearly non-airworthy befroe the war had even finished, and then allied destruction of equipment. Not even sure where i read this now... 😂

      Kenny BlackKenny BlackӨдрийн өмнө
    • Kinda true for many flying warbirds, not only german types. Mustangs, Spitfires and so on. Many are new builds due to the lack of airworthy original parts.

Perhaps there is another video on the channel with these? It is also weird seeing the Spitfire with a German reg and flag. But then that is the beauty of peace in Europe!

    • @Team33 WW2 Fighter planes are all designed with different purposes in mind. The spitfire was never intended to outrun a FW-190, nor could it if the 190 really wanted to catch it. The Spitfire was historically an incredible turn fighter, and was more nimble than any German or American made aircraft at the time. My comment is making fun of this "chase" because it's entirely inaccurate, and neither pilot is maneuvering defensively at all. It's just a fancy fly by.

  • Please do not forget, the British knew the German positions through the radar and were able to send the interceptors exactly there. In addition, the German hunters had a maximum of 5-10 minutes. Had fuel for a dogfight over England. Without this major advantage, the Battle of Britain would have been different. The fame that the Royal Air Force always earns is ultimately just smoke and mirrors and is based on the fact that you knew every step of the enemy well in advance. What kind of an achievement is that ?! They should just be happy and thank God that you were so lucky.
