Although it was developed long before, the Allies never met the Fw 190 in the air until early 1941, where it was quite a surprise to Allied aviators. It was so far superior to the British Spitfire V that the RAF was no longer just outnumbered but now exceeded in the quality of their aircraft. It wasnt until June of 1942 that a Fw 190 A crash landed in Britain, and after tests were conducted it was found that the 190 was actually better than they had expected.
