The Focke-Wulf Ta 152
was a World War II
German high-altitude fighter
designed by Kurt Tank
and produced by Focke-Wulf
The Ta 152 was a development of the Focke-Wulf Fw 190
aircraft. It was intended to be made in at least three versions—the Ta 152H Höhenjäger
("high-altitude fighter"), the Ta 152C designed for medium-altitude operations and ground-attack
using a different engine
and smaller wing, and the Ta 152E fighter-reconnaissance aircraft
with the engine of the H model and the wing of the C model.
The first Ta 152H entered service with the Luftwaffe in January 1945. While total production—including prototypes and pre-production aircraft—has been incorrectly estimated in one source at approximately 220 units, only some 43 production aircraft were ever delivered before the end of the European conflict. These were too few to allow the Ta 152 to make a significant impact on the air war.
