About the Fw190A-7 and the "Slipper" tank:
A research team at Graf Zeppelin Flugzeugwerke designed an experimental prototype for extended range flying based on the A-7 version of the famous WWII German Fw190. The A-7 had entered production in late 1943 and featured two 13mm MG131 machine guns and strengthened landing gear. However, the A-7 was soon to be eclipsed by the superior A-8 model, meaning that only eighty were ever manufactured. The prototype A-7 'Doppelreiter', as it was known, boasted 270-liter "slipper" fuel tanks, one mounted on each wing's upper surface.
