Captured Fw190 photo

Hello! Please help to identify this Fw190 variant. To me this plane looks like D-9, is this correct?
What is designation of the horizontal bar highlighted by red circle?

Thanks in advance!




Best regards,
Alexander

The bar means the II Gruppe of the assigned Geschwader, at this stage of the war the II Gruppe included 5, 6, 7 and 8 Stafflen.

I guess that photo was made at the city of Halle.

P.S. Fragment with some inscriptions on a chassis lid.

Is that a hole or a dot?

The fuselage lift tube hole is the small circular spot above the bar. The larger hole/dot is rather mysterious, is it not?

Re: Captured Fw190 photo

IMHO could also easily be one of the several "dots" on the original negative which are spread throughout this fantastic photo or even maybe a bullet hole...
