The Focke-Wulf Fw 200 was one of the world's first modern long range aircraft, although Winston Churchill later gave the military version the nick name 'Scourge of the Atlantic'. In 1939 the imperial japanese navy ordered a reconnaissance version of the civil Fw 200 but this was never delivered. Instead, these machines formed the basis for the newly formed Kampfgeschwader 40 (KG 40). The Fw 200C-4 from 1942 was the Fw 200 built in largest numbers. It was used as a long range reconnaissance plane and as a bomber against shipping targets. One of the main tasks of the Fw 200 was the search for convoys and the transmission of these useful data to german U-boats for a possible attack. Most Fw 200 were equipped with a Typ FuG 200 "Hohentwiel" shipping radar, characterised by the typical antennas on the nose. In the mean time, Heinkel had developped a remote controlled guided bomb, that entered service as the Hs 293, with a 500 kg explosive nose cone and a maximum speed of about 800 km/h. The Fw 200 also was used as a carrier aircraft and designated Fw 200C-5/FK. The last version of the Fw 200 was the C-8 series, from which just a few were built between autumn 1943 and the beginning of 1944. In total, some 275 Fw 200 in different versions were built.
