FOKE-WULF FW 200 The Luftwaffe Long Range Bomber

£14.99 £4.99

From the invaluable “Air War Archive” series, covering an impressive range of Luftwaffe aircraft, in the vein of the ‘Images of War’ series, this focusing on the The Focke-Wulf Fw 200 Condor, the German all-metal four-engined monoplane originally developed by Focke-Wulf as a long-range airliner.
A Japanese request for a long-range maritime patrol aircraft led to military versions that saw service with the Luftwaffe as long-range reconnaissance and anti-shipping/maritime patrol bomber aircraft.
It achieved success as a commerce raider until mid-1941, by which time it was being harried by long-range RAF Coastal Command aircraft and the Hurricane fighters being flown from CAM ships.
