Oxford Diecast 1/72 Focke Wulfe FW Ta152 Fighter Aircarft AC028
The FW Ta 152 was a German high-altitude, fighter-interceptor, derived
from the Focke Wulf FW 190. The prefix Ta rather than Fw was a tribute
to the head of the design team, Frank Tank. The Ta 152 was not
introduced until January 1945 and although a bit late in the day, the
aircraft made a great contribution to the German air defences, even
though less than 50 were made before the end of the conflict.
Oberfeldwebel Josef Keil of Jagdgeschwaderstab JG-30 I flew both FW 190s
and the Ta 152. He became one of the great Luftwaffe Aces, achieving 16
airborne victories before the end of his career, five of these flying
the Ta 152. It was in this aircraft 'Green 3', that he clocked yet more
victories against the Allies over Alterno, Germany in April 1945. His
last 'kills' were also in April 1945, this time downing Russian Y-9
planes over Berlin.
