and it only needed 2% of the bombs dropped strategically.

why the plane had a tank for funky fuel that was never actually used.
oil i though that germans were producing synthetic petrol. actualy they did all synthetic including synthetic rubber rubber

If you refer to the C3 fuel... the plane (A8 actually had 3 tanks (2 main tanks and the additional tank behind the cockpit) for this "funky" fuel. From the A3 (BMW 801 D2) variant on, the engine could only run on C3 fuel due to it's higher compression ratio compared to the C variant of the engine. That was at the end of 1941!

Well despite having nothing but coal, somehow the 190 managed to keep flying until the end of the war.... curious isnt it....
