    You need to do some research on the aircraft first.

    The Junkers Ju 86 should not even be in this for consideration.

    Why?

    Because it was retired from bomber duties after the attack on Poland.

    Why?

    Because it was found to be inferior to the He 111 and the Ju 88.

    In 1940 the Ju 86Ps came into service as High Alltitude Bombers with less than 50 being converted from previous models.

    Only 2 operated for a number of years as photo recon over England and Russia.

    So a plane that was mostly used as a photo recon aircraft should not be compared to bombers.

    A more accurate thread would be: G4M3vs.Ju 88vs.Il-4 or G4M3vs.He 111vs.Il4.....

    Agree with Adler. The Ju 86 was made into a high altitude recon that even Spits couldn't reach unless modified. They had a hard time bringing them down. Several were also used as transports for Stalingrad. But thats about it.

    One of the Ju 86P's was shot down over England by a modified Spitfire.

    How about Ju-86 vs. A.W. Whitley vs. Douglas B-18A.
