Erich Rudorffer was the 7th most successful WWII Luftwaffe fighter pilot. His first posting was to the 2nd Staffel / JG 2 "Richthofen", on January 7th, 1940. On May 14, 1940 Rudorffer scored his first victory and by May 1941he had run his victory tally to nineteen winning him the Knight's Cross. He ended 1941 with forty victories. On November 11, 1942 Rudorffer was promoted to Staffelkapitan of 6./JG 2 and moved to Tunisia where on February 9, 1943 he shoots down nine British aircraft within 32 minutes. Rudorffer's final score was 224 aircraft.

Focke-Wulf Fw 190A

Designed by Kurt Tank, the Fw-190A was first flown on June 1st, 1939. This small, yet ferociously-powered aircraft was fast and maneuverable and packed a fierce armament package earning it the nickname "Butcher Bird". The wide landing gear, excellent visibility and high-altitude paddle-bladed propeller endeared it to pilots familiar with the shortcomings of its predecessor - the Messerschmitt Bf 109. Some of the Luftwaffe's most famous fighter aces flew the Fw 190. Many variants were produced during the war, with the most notable being the inline-engine equipped and longer-nosed 190D, known as the "Dora."

Variants in this series include the early 190A, the upgraded 190A with armor plating, and the 190F attack variant with larger canopy and removable center-mounted bombs.
