F+W C-36 Explained

The F+W C-36 was an indigeneous multi-purpose fighter-bomber designed in 1939 by the Swiss Federal Constructions Works (EKW) and is comparable to the Ilyushin Il-2 Sturmovik. However, this aircraft has a twin fin layout, allowing the rear gunner to have a better visibility range.

A fair few were built and, along with Morane-Saulnier M.S.406's, fought off trespassing Luftwaffe aircraft to defend Swiss neutrality.

Soon the aircraft would be relegated to training and target-towing duties.

Many still fly to this very day.
