Thanks for posting them!

By the way, do you have similar tables of the Bf109's production numbers?

Unfortunately the Focke Wulf Production documents are not complete as they did not survive the war. We can piece together the information we have but it leads to conflicting numbers as gaps just simply exist in the facts.

Rodieke does a great job of summarizing this in his book which this looks like a modeling company reprinted most of it.

Kettenhunde,

Do you have any info on FW190A-9 production prior to September, 1944?.

I have the info from the "C-Amt Monatsmelding" (sp?) but was wondering if there is any more insight out there? TIA.

The above list shows that approx. 90 Fw 190A-9s were produced 8-9/1944 by Mimetall factory in Erfurt. This fits nicely with the data from this site (http://ww2.dk/oob/bestand/jagd/bjagd.htm), which reveals that 5 and 33 A-9s were delivered to LW units in August and September, respectively. Units which recieved A-9s in August were Stab/JG54 (only one) and II./JG54 (four).

There are a few in August and some KB runs before hand for testing. The bottom line is the engine was not available en-masse to begin production until after July 1944.

According to T3's in December 1943 engine production began in January 1944 and it took ~6 months to get the required 75% maintenance stocks.
