FACTS ABOUT THE FOCKE-WULF Ta 152H-1
Although not strictly part of the Fw 190 Series, the Ta 152 series has obvious ties to the 190 series. The Ta 152 series can be seen as further development of the Fw 190D high altitude fighter with structural and aerodynamic enhancements and new power plants. The designation change from Fw to Ta was to honor Kurt Tank who had designed the extremely successful Fw 190.

The development of the Ta 152 came about as the Luftwaffe saw the threat of high altitude bombers and reconnaissance aircraft which could be fielded by the allies and which would prove difficult, if not impossible, by current Luftwaffe interceptors to engage. Thus, even before high flying allied bombers began operations over Europe, the German aviation industry was hard at work exploring pressurized cockpits and cabins, turbo-superchargers, and other means to enhance engine performance at high altitude.

As the Boeing B-17 “Flying Fortress” began appearing in the skies and provided the Luftwaffe with intercept difficulties, German intelligence learned of the even more superior Boeing B-29 “Superfortress” and, even though the B-29 was never deployed to the European combat theater, it proved a motivator to the Luftwaffe to come up with an answer for it. Both Focke-Wulf and Messerschmitt were asked to put forth proposals.

Focke-Wulf offered the Fw 190 Ra 2 and Fw 190 R3 while Messerschmitt put forth the Me 109H series. In the end, the Me 109H became a loser to the soon-to-be called Ta 152, Kurt Tank was an influential and respected aircraft designer. Such was Tank’s sway that he was able to go around the usual aircraft naming scheme and his two models, the Ra-2 and the Ra-3, became the Ta 152B and the Ta 152H respectively.

The basis of the Ta 152 was the Fw 190D airframe and throughout the life of the aircraft’s evolution, various styles of wing, engine, weapons, and other changes were made to it. Common features included a pressure cabin for the pilot, armor protection for both the engine and cabin, provision for the GM 1 (nitrous oxide injection) kit or the MW50 (methanol-water injection) kit, hydraulic flap and undercarriage actuation, lengthened fuselage for increased internal capacity, enlarged tail surfaces and a moved cockpit area to maintain the center of gravity. The Ta 152 was powered by the Jumo 213E-1 engine, had an engine mounted 30 mm MK 108 mm cannon and a 20 mm MK 151 cannon in each wing root and FuG 16ZY and FuG 25a radio equipment.

Work began on a pre-production Ta 152H-0 at Sorau while the assembly line for production Ta 152H aircraft was readied at Cottbus. The first Ta 152 H, the Ta 152H V1 and the second V2, were completed in June and July of 1944 and the former sent to Langenhagen for testing, the other to Rechlin for official evaluation early August 1944. The first Ta 152 series aircraft that left the production line at Cottbus were part of a batch of20 pre-production Ta 152H-0s. These were delivered in October and November of 1944 to Erprobungskommando Ta 152, commanded by Hauptmann Bruno Stolle and based at Rechlin, which would service test the airplanes. At the close of November, the Ta 152H-1 began to roll off the lines, 34 being completed by year’s end. It was not until January 27th, 1945 that the first Ta 152H models begin to trickle into Luftwaffe service. Production was later severely hampered by the rapid advance of the Soviets who ultimately overran the famous Cottbus facility.

Despite the fact the Ta 152H was meant to combat high-altitude allied bombers, almost no missions of this type were flown by those units who operated the aircraft (notably, the III/JG 301 and stab JG 301), most were to be involved battling allied fighters such as P-51D and British Hawker “Tempest” and not bombers.
