Rare Limited Edition by Robert Taylor featuring Fw190s of JG-2.
Equipped with new Fw190s, the notorious fighter interceptors of JG-2 achieved startling success against the still inexperienced USAAF B-17 crews that regularly visited occupied ports on the west coast of France in 1943. The Fw190 quickly established a fearsome reputation and became the mainstay of the German defence.
Robert Taylor's spectacular painting highlights the elegant lethality that exuded from the Fw190, as a group of A-3 and A-4s climb out over Theville to intercept an in-coming armada of B-17 Fortresses en-route to bomb the submarine pens at Lorient.
Gathering Storm by Robert Taylor is signed by four distinguished Focke-Wulf 190 Aces, having between them almost 2500 combat missions and no fewer than 393 aerial victories:
Major Heinz Lange KC
Major Fritz Losigkeit
Hauptmann Günther Schack KC with Oak Leaves
Leutnant Hugo Broch KC.
