Germany : Ju 87 R-2
The single-engine two-seater Junkers Ju-87 Stuka dive bomber was plagued with low speed and maneuverability and was extremely vulnerable without fighter support, but due to its high accuracy and a number of unusual design choices, it became one of the most famous of the Luftwaffe’s aircraft. The Ju 87R-2 was a modification of the Ju 87B-2 and was manufactured during the same period of time. The Ju 87R-2 (Reichweite, «long-range») had increased range due to the installation of two additional 150-liter wing fuel tanks and two disposable 150-liter fuel tanks under its wings, instead of the usual four 50-kg bombs.
5,752 «Stukas» were constructed, 616 of which were Ju 87R-2s.
