Description

The Fw 190 C is a premium gift rank IV German fighter with a battle rating of 5.3 (AB) and 5.0 (RB/SB). It was introduced during Update 1.85 "Supersonic" as a reward for the 2018 Festive Quest for ten Christmas toys for pilots earned during the event. This variant receives a high altitude supercharger meaning it will exceed in performance at higher altitudes, this is complimented by its decent climb rate. But this plane sacrifices 2 wing mounted cannons for enhanced flight capability.

This aircraft has a very unique play style in regards to the other 190s.It can turn reasonably well at most speeds, having turning capabilities akin to that of the 1st 190 in the tech tree, albeit at a major cost in energy. This fighter has a mediocre climb rate, around 15.6 m/s (RB/SB) which is below average for the BR range it sits in. The most unique feature this aircraft possesses is its supercharger allowing it to perform at altitudes well above 7km.

This 190 has a fairly slow top speed at sea level, so you won't see it running away from most planes but at high altitudes, it is reasonable fast.

Like any other 190, the roll rate is exceptional allowing for good firing solutions during dives and good defensive flying capabilities. As mentioned before, the turning capability of the 190 is fairly decent and not something to glance over. Although, it can't function as a dedicated turn fighter, it can perform very well in dogfights. In addition, the 190 has a very low stall speed which is a good asset to have in vertical dogfights. Another point to mention is that this 190 has an off-centre off mass (possibly due to the intake at the bottom of the plane) which is very noticeable during low speed maneuvers.

This plane is not suited for close quarters dogfighting, but despite its low mass excels at energy fighting. It will not last long in a turn fight. The front armoured glass plate of the cockpit is 57 mm thick, and the pilot is protected from the rear by 2 plates, 8 mm and 12 mm thick respectively. The engine is prone to damage in head-ons due to the lack of armour protection around the engine cowling.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Ammunition500 rounds
Fire rate750 shots/min
Ammunition1 800 rounds
Fire rate1 150 shots/min

The Fw 190 C is armed with:

  • 2 x 20 mm MG 151 cannons, wing-mounted (250 rpg = 500 total)
  • 2 x 7.92 mm MG 17 machine guns, nose-mounted (900 rpg = 1,800 total)

The Fw-190 C receives 2 MG 151 20 mm cannons mounted in the inner wings behind the propeller, and 2 MG 17 7.92 mm machine guns mounted in the nose, the standard for German aircraft at this point in the tree. The 20 mms get 500 rounds of ammo with their respective belts making them considerably deadly and optimal for longer battles. The MG 17s get 1,800 rounds of ammo but do lesser amounts of damage, best used in combination with the 20 mms, but can be used to effectively peck damage lighter aircraft.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Exceptional climb rate
  • Main armament is deadly and receives a vast quantity of ammunition for prolonged engagements
  • Decent turner, can out-turn some fighters it comes up against, but will suffer in turn fights
  • Supercharger gives great acceleration and performance at high altitudes
  • Premium bonus
  • Control surfaces very responsive at extreme speeds
  • Incredibly high speed required to rip wings >900km/h

Cons:

  • Cannot sustain in prolonged turn fights
  • Lacks sufficient armour protection, both frontally and from the rear
  • Susceptible to fires when fired at by .50 cal rounds from tracer belts in particular
  • Even its climb rate can be exceeded by some opponents in an up-tier and even down-tier
  • Is outperformed by the Dora series of 190
  • Struggles to accelerate past 700km/h, even in a near vertical dive
  • Very poor control response during near stall maneuvers

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
