Focke-Wulf TA 152.
Known as the ‘Long Nosed’ FW 190. After successful trials Professor Kurt Tank redesignated the aircraft as the TA 152. Structurally there was little difference between the TA 152 & its predecessor. The wings were of slightly larger area & differed in plan form, the nose was cleaned up to give a smoother finish to the top line of the fuselage & hydraulic instead of electrical operation was used for landing gear & flaps.



Focke-Wulf TA 154.
Designed to meet a specification for a night fighter with a high maximum speed & a duration of 2 3/4 hours. Rapid development & quantity production was emphasised together with extensive use of materials not in short supply, particularly wood, as by use of the wood working industry -roduction [sic] could be hastened. Publicised as the German equivalent of the De Havilland Mosquito. Produced as a single seat & a two-seat fighter. Powered by Two Jumo 211N or R 12 cylinder inverted Vee liquid cooled engines.
