'Fw190A of Erich Rudorffer'
Original Pencil Drawing
One of the very greatest Luftwaffe aces - Erich Rudorffer flew on all fronts and all of the great single-engined German fighters of the war. Beginning in the Battle of France and later over Britain, he flew the Me109E with JG2. He converted to the Fw190A on the Channel Front and was later transferred to Africa, where he achieved more successes. Flying against both RAF and USAAF fighters, Rudorffer claimed many of both types. Here he is shown in combat with P-38 Lightings on the USAAF with his distictive Fw190 markings. Rudorffer was one of the top-scoring Luftwaffe pilots in Africa during the final battles there. He later flew in Russia and finally in Defence of the Reich with the Me262 jet.
