Hi All,
I'm not sure if this has ever been posted before, but I just wanted your thoughts. Have you ever noticed that the Fw-190 A-8 in FB is equiped with the late style "blown" canopy. This is not really a bad thing, but as far as I know most of the A-8's were fitted with the earlier "flat" canopies like the ones on the A-4 and A-5 series. Do any of you think that this will be addressed in the patch, or that it will remain the same?

P.S: I'm not trying to be pedantic or anything, just curious on what everyone thinks!

You are correct, most FW-190A-8's were produced with standard canopy. However, many were retrofitted with blown canopy and it became standard production in the F-9 and A-9 series. Not sure why Oleg gave the A-8 blown canopy. I doubt very much that it will be changed in the patch.

Even early D-9s used flat hoods...

OT: Besides the prototypes there was only one production A-9 anyway...

About 900 FW 190 A-9 were build in 1944/45

At a guess its probably like that because of the reference a/c that was used when the model for FB was built.
