    Hi guys,

    Ive asked a few members privately and no results so Im asking if any can help out. Im looking for technical drawings and pictures of the bomb bay of a Junkers Ju88. Attached is the only drawing that Ive found so far which came from a japanese magazine on the Ju-88

    Thank in advance
    Paul

    i guess there was a Rüstsatz M 1 with bomb racks in very early Ju 88.
    Later in war the space was used for a second big fuel tank and the bombs where carried outsite in ETCs.
    Some night fighter had only one fuel tank and additional weapons " Schraege Musik".

    Interesting problem :). May be an early rack photo will show up.

    Thanks Evan,

    Cant wait to see what you can find. Junkers88A1 who asked me the question was able to find these pictures from an obscure manual that he had found in the musuem. Needless to say neither one of us has been able to come up with pictures though.
