    This thread is not right.

    You can not compare the Ju 88 to the B-17 or the B-24. They are different kinds of bombers.

    You could compare the Lancaster to the B-17 and the B-24 but not the Ju 88.

    Maybe should have tried something like Ju-88 vs B-26 vs B-25 or something? The '88 wouldn't do well against the heavy B-17 or B-24, since it's more a medium bomber and the other two are heavies...

    The Ju-88? Goodness me, that couldn't do half what the Heavies could do.

    I would say maybe the Ju-88 vs. the B-25 or possibly the B-26 as Lucky stated.

    You will find the Ju-88 and the B-25 matched up well against each other, with the Ju being a bit faster, and the B-25 having a bit more range and combat load.

    Of course the both American planes had better armour and defensive weapons, and what most considered better engines (especially if the Ju-88 was using the older 801's versus the Jumo 213's).
