Meteorit said:Unlike the other German aircraft manufacturers, Focke-Wulf didn't use a consistent P.XXX/EF.XXX/E.XXX numbering system. Designations like Fw 249 were created post-war by aviation writers and should not be considered official RLM ones. (I have not had the courage to challenge Andreas about this matter so far. )
Anyway, I'd appreciate if you could clean up the mess of "FW-xxx" designations a bit. My selection of reference sources on the subject is far from complete, and contains conflicting information, especially on the subject of 8-series numbers (just for the record, I have FW-249 noted as "non-RLM" ). There are quite a few FW numbers in my list, which seem a bit doubtful, and I'd love to see some of them confirmed or rejected.
