I read that there are no longer any surviving WWI veterans.

It was reported in 2011 that only 10% of WWII veterans still remain. Somewhere between 150,000 and 250,000 die each year in the US alone!

Wow, I have seen Manfred on several shows and read about him in Trail of the Fox. Its alarming how many of the WWII era people have past away.

If you come across a WWII vet take time to visit with them.

I picked the FW-190. It was a better plane than the 109 about a third were lost to accidents alone. I guess we could even say pilots lost in the 109 might have survived had the been in the 190 and lived to fight another day.

 
I have wondered how would a few early production FW-190 would have faired in the Battle of Britain. Those 20 mm cannons would make quick work of Hurricanes and Spitfires. With the English pilot supply in such short numbers could this have tipped the Battle?

The 190 was a much better Fighter and I am sure its  range was better, so I agree.
The 109 had a very short range and could not escort the Bombers far or even dogfight for more than a handful of minutes once over England.
The Battle of Britain was over before it entered service. I do not know when it appeared. Was it Autumn of 41?
Nice poll Worsham.

You are correct the FW-1-90 made its first appearance in late 1941 over the Channel. Had this plane been escorting bombers over England, how would the Battle play out?

The Ju-88 saw action in the Battle of Britain in small numbers. Being the only German bomber that was built as a war plane, instead of the other multi role "air mail" planes the plane could make good speed which gave its crews a better survival rate.

FW-200 Condors were a plague for British convoys making the "Gibraltar Run." The Condors also were the long arm for the Axis in attacking Malta bound Convoys.

Which of these additions would best help the Germans in the upcoming 1940-41 years?
