The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-8 entered production in February of 1944. The A-8 model introduced the MW-50 supercharger that was to have been used in the A-4 model, but was not available in quantities at that time. It was also equipped with a new wooden propeller easily identified by its wide paddle-shaped blades and a new cockpit canopy design similar to the "bubble" canopies that were being used by the Allied air forces. Over 6,550 A-8 airframes were produced
