Junkers Ju-88A-4 WWII Axis Bomber Decal-4 options Romanian AF, Hungarian AF and 2 x Finnish AF. With highly detailed engines and cockpit interior
The Ju-88 was designed as a schnellbomber in the mid 30s, and at the time it was faster than current fighter designs, so it was projected that it could infiltrate, bomb and ex-filtrate without being intercepted. That was the theory anyway. By the time WWII began in the west, fighters had caught up with the previously untouchable speed of the 88, and it needed escorting to protect it from its Merlin equipped opponents. It turned out to be a jack of all trades however, and was as competent as a night fighter, dive bomber or doing reconnaissance as it was bombing Britain. They even popped a big gun on the nose and sent it against tanks and bombers, with variable success.
The A series sported a pair of Jumo 211 engines in cylindrical cowlings producing over 1,000hp each, and was improved gradually up until the A-17, with the A-11 being the official designation for the factory produced tropicalised version. It was fitted with filters to protect the engine from dust and dirt, as well as a rescue kit for ditching and forced landings. The A-4 was an Improved variant over initial versions. It would feature a longer wingspan, (due to redesigned wingtips), better defensive armament, a reinforced undercarriage; and provision for external bomb racks (4). Powerplant for the A-4 was Jumo 211 J-1 or J-2 engines (1410 hp) driving wooden bladed propellers.
