Availability: In stock
- The Junkers Ju88 proved to be one of the most versatile and effective German aircraft of the Second World War. Designed initially as a high speed bomber, able to outpace ﬁghter aircraft sent to challenge it, early Ju88 units endured a difﬁcult introduction to combat, especially during the Battle of Britain. Despite the Ju88 being the latest bomber to enter service, pilots had not had time to familiarize themselves with this advanced aircraft and it suffered loss rates higher than the older Heinkel HeIII and Dornier Do17. Many were lost in training accidents or attributed to pilot unfamiliarity with the advanced aircraft, but constant development soon turned the Schnellbomber into a ﬁne aircraft, with the basic airframe capable of supporting numerous modiﬁcations. Indeed, the Ju-88 was in constant production throughout WWII and was produced in greater numbers than any other twin engined aircraft of the Second World War.
