On July 7th, 1942 some Luftwaffe planes spotted Allied landing craft slated to take part in Operation Rutter around the Solent docks. The planes dive bombed the ships, hitting H.M.S. Astrid and H.M.S. Josephine Charlotte.

Does anyone know what type of planes they were and what unit they were with? the best info I can find mentions only that they were FW-190s, but not what variants or what unit they were with.
