I make the W.Nr. 160662 (the first digit is very faint), so it could be a G-3, of which NSGr. 20 still had some. As interesting though is that Ju 87, and a possible second one, under the trees in the background. You can just see the exhaust flame suppressor, so it's from either NSGr. 1 or 2 (if we definitely are in Western Germany). I can't see a wing cannon, so it should be a D-3. IIRC these units never shared a base with NSGr. 20 but that doesn't preclude an Fw 190 landing at one of their airfields od course.
