Dont know exact number but Fw190 belong to the best armored fighter of WWII, engine, cockpit and ammo magazines had good armor protection (8-13mm of "wotan" steel). But belly was vulnerable to heavy MG fire.
For ex. La5F weigh (tehe approx the same size fighter) was about 2800kg (wooden spares), Fw190A4=3120 kg (weaponry+about 200kg of armor).

As a rough indication, assume the FW190 armour is half a metre thinner than that of the Lagg3 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Aaah, thats because Tank used obsolete steel armour, unlike wise soviets, who covered entire planes with plywood armour, you know, the siberian kevlartree plywood http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
