Focke-Wulf Fw-191

fockewulffw191


The Fw 191 was designed as a high-altitude, pressurised, bomber. Focke-Wulf built a technically complex machine around engines which did not exist, and the operation of the majority of the components was electric, which complicated problems. The second prototype had the elecric systems replaced by hydraulics. Development problems caused its abandonment. Three built.
