Imperialist is right. Although that drawing appears to be inaccurate.sgeorges4 said:what kind of propeler was use by this variant?
HeS 8 turbojet? I'm reading it at Justo Miranda "Focke Wulf Jet Fighters" pg 16 The drawing is on page 19.what kind of turbo it have?
Diese Werkzeichnung zeigt die Anordnung des BMW-801-Abgasturboladers als Anhängegerät direkt unterhalb des Motors zwischen dem Fahrwerk. Eine Erprobung in dieser Kombination gab es allerdings nicht.

In April 1945, the Japanese purchased the specifications for the Ta 152 as a means to rapidly acquire a high-altitude fighter. However, by this time there was simply no way for the Japanese to act on the material obtained.
Welcome aboard Spicmart,and as I know there was still unknown projected versions of Ta.152.spicmart said:I wonder what performance improvement would have come when the Ta 152 had featured a laminar flow wing and Jumo 222?
Origins - FW 190 C Prototype
The FW 190 V18 was designed and built as a prototype for the high-altitude FW 190 C, and in V18/U1 form it had the DB 603 A engine driving a four-bladed propeller. The FW 190 C was a projected high-altitude fighter that never came to fruition; even so five prototypes were completed, the FW 190 V18, V29, V30, V32 and V33. Each of these aircraft had DB 603 inline engines, annular radiators, Hirth 9-2281 turbochargers and four-bladed propellers. The FW 190 V18 was coded CF + OY and received a white outline Balkenkreuz and Hakenkreuz. By 1944 the project had been halted by technical problems and opposition to use of the DB 603 (which was needed for other aircraft types)
The strange protuberance on the underside of the aircraft is the Hirth 9-2281 turbocharger. Note the nearly unchanged rear fuselage and canopy.
The images you show come from a report dated July 28, 1944, entitled Vergleich Zwischen Getriebelader und Abgasturbine fuer Einen Hoehenjaeger or Comparison Between the Gear-Driven Supercharger and the Exhaust-Driven Turbine in a High-Altitude Fighter.Imperialist said:Hi all I was wondering in regards to the attached image, what variant(s) form the basis of these turbocharged Fw-190? I'm assuming modified A and/or C variants? Also any data in the form of dimensions (such as if it used the 0.5m tail plug as well) would be greatly appreciated
Attached as well is my attempt to somewhat reconstruct what it would approximately look like (example aircraft variant is Fw-190 C-0 (V13)
Thank you Jens – that's a great thread on the X-4!Ruhrstahl X-4, https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/threads/kramer-x-4-air-to-air-missile.6097/,... I like those strange missiles on the last Fw.190 ...
