    What engine was used in the Ju86K-2 which was bought by Hungary? What was the max. speed of the Ju 86K-2? What machineguns was the Ju 86K-2 armed with (the Swedish versions of the Ju 86K had the 7.92mm Browning)?

    Thanks,

    Neil

    Well on the Ju-86K-2, which was the sole one of this designation, they had the original Pratt Whitney Hornet S1E-G 9-cylinder radial of 875HP. Theere were 3 K-1s and the K-2 designation came about when one example was fitted with skis for Sweden. As pbfoot noted the K-9 was the model that went to Hungary.

    I don't have any exact armament data on this model nor top speeds. The Ju-86G -1 which had 865HP engines gave a top end of 236MPH @ 13,120 feet while the E-1 with 810HP engines made 224MPH at that same altitude

    My sources show the Pegasus on the K-4 and after. Since he was asking about the K-2 those 3 ships only had the P&Ws.
