F-9? The R4H1 rockets, right?

Response to Fw190F-9 loadout?

According to Vol 3 of Fw 190 by Classic Publications, the F-9 was not equipped with them.

However there was an F-8/Pb fitted with R4H1 rockets, but does not give any production numbers. I do have a document which indicates that both the F-8 and F-9 could be fitted with both R4M air to air and R4H1 Panzerblitz rockets.

The Panzerblitz was the R4M rocket with a different head, larger and hollow charge. I presume the rack was the same.

I found this site, but it sounds like conjecture

Perhaps someone has more specific information.

Not sure if this is an F-8 or -9. But it is fitted with the rack for the R4M
