    Does anyone have any information about this variant of the Stuka? How about any drawings or pictures?

    How long were the used for, how many were produced, and were they effective? Any perspective from the Soviet side about these? Any help is appreciated.

    Ju 87's in the NSGr's were D-3's and D-5's sometimes referred to as (N)'s. there were no R's night raiders. also the the D-7 and D-8's never existed that is incorrect.

    It's not impossible they used Bs and Rs for night training while in-unit they had Ds.
    D-7 and D-8 were existing, just not as production model. They were older models upgraded to D-5 standard + night equipment.
