Fw-290 by Schmittfeuer Fw-290 by Schmittfeuer
The side view of an aircraft that I came up with not too long ago. What I was basically aiming for was a less anime version of the J-2 Skyly from Sky Crawlers, which I believe shows most in the oversized blisters for the pistons, the contra rotary prop, as well as the three intakes on the belly (coolers plus supercharger).

The colour scheme is a fictional one and my take on WWII-style markings for the Belkan air forces (ace combat series).

Focke Wulf Fw-290

General Characteristics:

Crew: 1
Length: ~11.8m
Wingspan: ~11.0m
Height: ~4.05m
Empty weight: 3655kg
Loaded weight: 4365kg (ammunition plus pilot)
MTOW: 4936kg

1x Südentor type 204 liquid-cooled supercharged V-24 CRP reciprocating engine (3290hp plus 350hp MW50 or 320hp GM1 WEP boost)

The aircraft was originally going to be equipped with a Pegasus XII turboprop engine, however delays on deliveries as well as complications with the engines themselves eventually lead to the installation of the type 204 piston engine for the mass produced variant of the fighter. Testing with the Pegasus XII continued at Focke Wulfs airfields though.

Maximum speed: 805km/h at 7,600m; 765km/h at 10,000m
Cruise speed: 632km/h
Stall speed: 180km/h
Service ceiling: 13,500m

Four MG-151/20 20mm autocannons mounted to the wings and one MK-103 30mm autocannon firing through the hollow propeller shaft.

Thou could have kept the turbocharger and X-shaped engine. Only strange thing about J-2 was those cowls at its sides and those two extra radiators behind cockpit.

Interesantes Ding, muss ich schon sagen.
Erinnert stark an die Ta152 H und C. Das einzige was mich persönlich etwas irritiert ist die sehr dünne Nase des Fliegers.

Man dankt.

Und schön dass sie an die Ta erinnert, weil von der, respektive den Doras hab ich ja das mit der Nase und dem Spinner geklaut, weil ich die irgendwie genial finde.

Aber hast recht die Nase wird wirklich etwas dünn gegen vorne, wobei irritiert mich jetzt net extrem.

Service ceiling 13,5m? Show them cows who's the boss! Nevertheless, nice to look at.

As you may remember the english system uses the comma rather than the apostrophe for thousands (and the point for decimals) :P

So it's certainly not 13.5m but rather 13.5km
