Focke-Wulf Fw 190 F/G series and ME 262, They were more to be distributive, And they could still be found in the 1950's.

As Coxy_99 mentions, they were on the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 F/G. As far as I can tell, the F/G are direct low-altitude conversions of the FW 190 A series (BMW 801 engine). In the 24-Aug-2018 DCS announcement, ED said there was an FW 190 A-8 in development. If that is human-flyable (hopefully!!!), then it would make a lot of sense to add these low-alt munitions.

As they did i can only see use in 1943 unless they were used later on could they work like the bk-90? Except un guided?

According to the russian Forum the A-8 will be flyable.

F were indeed ground attack dedicated versions, by adding some armour plates, removing extra outer guns adding weight, and the possibility of multiple bomb racks (some of them in the wings, where the guns were before). Maybe some extra details but overall that's it. That was either F-x version built in factory, or A-x/U3 by field conversion kits (but the exact same aircraft either way). G model is the same but in a long range fashion, so wing mounted fuel tanks, and cowling machine guns removed, but mostly quite similar anyway. G-x built in factory (I think not many IIRC) and A-x/U8 by field kits. As a module possibility maybe that's way too much work for a single aircraft bearing in mind how ED usually does them as ME variants and not parallel modules, but it makes sense an eventual A-8 could also be at least a F-8.

Nope not april fools. Coyote confirmed it in the Russian forum section. All we know so far is that it will be a "standard" version with 2xMG131 and 4xMG151 and that it will recieve an entirely new cockpit (ie 3d model will be made from scratch and not adapted from the Dora).

My guess is it will be part of the "Flying Legends" Pack Nick Grey mentioned together with the Mosquito. Hopefully they will do the G-6 as well.

Definitely good news. And, combining that with what Ala13_ManOWar wrote about the F-series, it seems more than reasonable to add in SD2 (butterfly bombs) as an armament option.

Lets see what ED think and do we already getting an A.I lancaster which should carry the tall boy, Even v1 or v2's should be added maybe but more bombs would be cool i believe theres not just the SD2 i think theres another in the wiki

Edit: But having the tall boy would need to remove bomb bay doors and the top gunner.
