"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

I've seen that video labelled many things, so it might not be a FW-190.

Hard to tell too, since it appears only an MG131 is firing.

Obviously Nazi propoganda, an Fw-190 could never shoot down an La-5<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

i think the label at the start sys its an FW-190 A8 v a LAGG 5 but its kinda hard to see what it says cause of the resolution. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Just a wild guess. The smoke and impact doesn't seem consistant with 20mm cannon in other videos, but it doesn't look small enough to be 30cal.

In any case, it ain't 4 cannons. Maybe it's Snoopy!

Keep in mind, the video doesn't show the La-5 crash. The shootdown could be as bogus as the 'FW-190'.

It may have absorbed 100 more hits and returned to base. The dents were attributed to reverse hail.
