Focke-Wulf Fw 187 A-0 Falke (Falcon)

01/22/2003. Remarks by Chris Pinn: "The Focke-Wulf 187 was originally designed as a single seat fighter along similar lines as aircraft such as the Westland Whirlwind. It was then modified to compete with the Messerschmitt Bf 110 by changing it to a two seat 'Zerstörer' configuration. As the Bf 110 had better performance as well as a rearward firing gun, production of the FW 187 was stopped after only three production aircraft had been built. These were used in Focke-Wulf's factory defence squadron." View also the History
