Focke-Wulf Flugzeugbau AG was a German manufacturer of civil and military aircraft during World War II. Many of the company's successful fighter aircraft designs were slight modifications of the Focke-Wulf Fw 190.

The Fw 190 Würger (butcher-bird), designed from 1938 on, and produced in quantity from early 1941 to 1945, was a mainstay single-seat fighter for the Luftwaffe during World War II. The Fw 190D version, known by pilots as "Dora", was powered by a much heavier inverted V12 that was quite a bit longer, and resulted in 30 cm added to the rear fuselage. This resulting fighter was called by Chuck Yeager the best fighter of WWII. This aircraft, when piloted properly, could easily down a P-51 or a British Spitfire. -
