Photo 01: This photograph shows a Focke-Wulf Fw 189A-2 Uhu (Owl). Almost devoid of its temporary white winter finish, Focke-Wulf Fw 189A-1, coded 4E+MK of the 12.(H)/13 is seen here being prepared for a sortie from either Uljanowo or Orel-West in the winter of 1942-43.

Focke-Wulf Fw 189 2.(H)/13 (4ETK) Eastern Front 1943 01
Photo 01: This photograph shows a Focke-Wulf Fw 189A-1 Uhu (Owl). Luftwaffe personnel at an unidentified airfield on the Eastern Front inspect a badly damaged Focke-Wulf Fw 189A-1, coded 4E+TK of the 12.(H)/13 in late 1943. Although fitted with the standard upper dorsal armament of the A-1, the tail position is fitted with the later MG 81Z installation of the A-2, and the unit code letters of 4E, although barely visible, have been applied in accordance with the change ordered in mid-1943.
