Here is a manual for the A9 from our website http://www.jagdverband44.com/FW190a9%20Flight%20manual/FW-190A9%20Flight%20Manual.pdf
even though it says A9 the principles are the same.
Also feel free to ask a JV44 member for help online. We fly on hypperlobby.
In short its biggest(only http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) advanteges are firepower and roll rate. keep it hummin and don't get sucked into a a turning fight
good luck

One thing to keep in mind, the A8 has 200 less horsepower than the A9 (1460 vs 1650 hp), but weighs only 100 kg less (3438 vs 3530 kg).

On the flip side, the A8 has about the same horsepower as the A5 (1460 vs 1450 hp), but weighs over 300 kg more (3438 vs 3120 kg).

It's slower than either the A5 or the A9 by about 20 kph.

So, all things equal (and they never are), it's a dog compared to the later Antons.

If given the chance, I always take the A9 over the A8. If there's no A9 available, I usually take the A8 over an A5 or A6, but only because of the mk108 cannon option.

i only use thge a8 offline against heavies

in that role it is superb

my normal strat is take mk108 in-wing cannon enter a shallow dive at 110% to gain excess air speed come up under the target fire overshoot above roll inverted come down again fire and repeat as necessary
