more advanced versions of the Fw190 were made, supposedly faster and more manueverable than the mustang, but there were engine problems (poor craftsmanship), and only two Ta 152H-1s survived the war.

The Mustang was the king of piston engined planes, and in my opinion, the most effective fighter of the war.
