Focke Wulf FW-187D-2 Nachtfalke


When the Focke Wulf FW-187 lost out to the Messerschmitt BF-110 as the heavy fighter for the Luftwaffe the Focke Wulf company looked for other ways to get the type into production.

Their chance came in 1943 when the Luftwaffe was looking for a night fighter. Focke Wulf offered the FW-187D model with DB601 engines and a FuG-220 Lichtenstein radar. The type was ordered into production and a total of 481 were built before the end of the war.
