Well I fly both just because they are just such a joy to fly and look at! The FW-190 is a truly brilliant design and certainly one of the designs that made warbirds one of the pinnacles of aviation history. The Dora is primarily meant to intercept high flying bombers and fend of their escort, so if you like to fly high, it might be your pick. As already mentioned in many posts, the A8 is mainly for ground attack.

Another thing that you should consider is the difference in engines. The Anton is the only plane with a radial engine currently in DCS. And to be honest a radial engine is a must have experience. The Junkers Jumo 213 V12 is of course also a superb engine with more power, but you might have excellent V12's already if you own any of the other WWII birds.

Morning, mate, when did you do your last sortie? What about the bugs all people are complaining, particularly with bombing?
As far as I´m focussing on the ETO, say Normandy in the time of D-Day, the Anton would be the only choice for staying in that timeline... But the bugs are really deterrent if they are taht as massive as word goes...

The Bugs get ironed out. And currently the only bug I see critical, is the engine damage model. There is none. Check the Anton section regarding the CB pop up "problem". Bomb release works again.
I really like the Anton. Currently more than the Dora. But in the Anton you have a really hard time against Spits and Mustangs. I very often get sniped and see my plane continue to fly for a moment until it hits the ground.

The bomb drop function is fixed, so I don't see the issue. I enjoy the Anton very much in air-to-ground (at least in the open beta release). When did I fly Anton/Dora last ? Today actually, like the days before.

Sound very good, mate! Besides the not existing damage model of the engine, are there any other bugs you can talk about?

There are some people complaining about the forward visibility and the lack of properly refracted light going through the armor glass. Honestly, it's not a big problem. People are just nitpicking about it, and it doesn't impede visibility a whole lot. Besides, it looks the same as it does in other games that have a 190

In case you're wondering what Zach writes about: it's "the bar".

Sorry, I usually use a technical review to help me decide a type

You know you'll end up buying both eventually anyway

Aaargh! That's the most confusing and/or obscure way to describe it. It's not just a bar. Saying that a bar is blocking your view sounds like you have a long piece of metal obviously striking through your view, like there's something in between you, your gunsight, and the armored glass.
What it is is the bottom edge of the armored glass, drawn to look like it is a FRAME for it. Frame ≠ bar
/end angry rant
