The Fw 190 F was a dedicated ground attack version of the Fw 190 A. The most noticeable difference between the 190 F-8 and F-9 is the enlarged cowl ring fitted to the latter. It has also been believed that the 190 F-9 was fitted with a 14 blade cooling fan. However, new evidence reveals that this enlarged fan caused a significant performance reduction. Therefore, the earlier 12 blade could have been maintained for better performance. This variant is available in all three scales, the latest from Revell in 1/32nd scale.
