In 1937 even though the Me-109 was a very capable fighter the 
Reichsluftfahrtministeriun (RLM) or Reich Air Ministry was worried that future foreign 
designs might surpass its performance so they called for submissions of designs. Kurt 
Tank won the competition with his radical use of an air-cooled radial engine that he 
dubbed the Fw-190 Würger (Butcher Bird). There were many skeptics who believed this 
new aircraft would surpass the performance of the Me-109. However when the Fw-190 
entered combat in the summer of 1941 it already was Germany’s premiere piston-
powered WWII fighter. Over 20,000 of all variants of the Fw-190 were built with 13,291 of 
these being of the 9 different “A” variants.

Ernst Schröder joined the Luftwaffe in 1941 and became an He-111 mechanic. In May 
1943 he transferred to pilot school and in January 1944 he received his pilot wings and 
joined JG.101 for fighter training. In June 1944 Schröder first flew the Fw-190 and was 
assigned to 5.JG.300. The Fw-190 he received was WNr. 172733 Red 19, fresh from the 
factory at Cottbus and this aircraft remained his personal aircraft until November 27, 
1944 when he did a belly-landing after a fight with a P-51.
