    No, not at all.

    You misproved yourself there.

    The Stuka is NOTHING like the Ju-88, the Ju-88 is a different class than the B-17...


    IL-2 is like the Stuka, the Battle was crap, the Me-262 bomber was too fast and in turn ineffective, the P-38 was a very unique bomber, the Mossie was one of a kind...



    They are not at all the same...


    Look at the Ju-88 itself, Jager, Nachtjager, Bomber(Bomber is Bomber in German),Maritime attack, tank-buster, ground-attack...

    Same with the Mossie.

    But there were the versions carrying a Norden sight or a BTO radar that were definitely bombers.

    The bigger the bomber, logically the more it can carry. So the more it can destroy on the ground. It wasn't stupid in those days because the restrictions were on the engines, until jets came a long.
