There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

LOL, that would have been my great-grandfather, and he would have been on the other side!

Interesting plane, as it's borrowed quite a bit from other aircraft. The fuselage and elevator looks like a Nieuport, but there are some very Sopwith looking parts thrown in for good measure.
