This video is brought to you by RU WoWP beta pilot Korvalol02

 

This plane looks to be a Thunder medal farmer.

 

 

It looks fun to play.

It's a good plane when flown correctly. Wish they had added bombs to its load-out. It also is a very efficient IL killer. Not a nimble dog fighter though and light fighters will give you a lot of problems.

nice find.

I cant wait to see how the line changes when in the live server.

I think you'll see a big difference on how some of the pilots fly this line.

Can't wait! This is one of the few planes that I really, really wanted the day I started playing.

The Junkers Ju.87A, B and C were all purely dive bombers and carried only bombs for dealing with ground targets.  Their bomb capacity was a mere 450 kg (One SC250 and four SC50s) Ju.87s were useful in knocking out ground targets historically because they attacked in waves and with precision unheard of through conventional bombing.

 

With the tier system we have here there would be no guarantee against your Ju.87B being dumped into battle by itself with no other Stukas to back it up; such a circumstance would render it useless as it would be able to eliminate one or two targets at the most via dive bomb runs.

 

The Ju.87D mounted a pair of 20mm cannons and a pair of 7.92mm MGs, some were field modified to carry SC50s as well.  This would fit in well at tier IV instead of the Fw.189C Uhu.

 

The Ju.87G never carried bombs.  The airframe was already overtaxed carrying the 37mm BK pods.

I was just looking through the forums wondering why there is not a Ju87 B or D bomber.  Agree, the Ju87D (20mm and bombs) would be a perfect tier IV Premium plane...  Sad to see this has been talked about for years and not happened yet.  Seems it would be little effort to make it happen...
