Overview[edit | edit source]
A mainstay of the Luftwaffe's arsenal, the Junkers Ju 88 was a twin-engined multirole combat aircraft introduced in 1939. The design suffered from numberous technical problems in its early years, primarily as a result of feature creep and constant piling of new features onto the plane. Most of the issues were rectified by 1941, and by summer of 1941, the Ju 88 became the durable war horse it's remembered as, evenetually becoming one of the most important aircraft designs of Nazi war machine, serving as a bomber, dive, bomber, night fighter, torpedo bomber, recon plane, heavy fighter, and even a flying bomb.
Nearly 16,000 air frames were built in dozens of variants, but the basic structure of the aircraft remained unchanged.
