    Holá Jan!

    Junkers Ju 52 aircraft also had large circular antenna above the radioman's position. My guess is it's for the radio, not for detecting submerged vessels.

    I think you will find it was used to detonate sea mines.

    Wait, I couldn't see the pics, so I assumed he meant the radioman's antenna.

    If the subject is a large ring mounted under the fueslage, then Wildcat's right. (Some Ju 52s had these aswell, incidently)

    Thanks Jan and Wildcat for posting the vids! I still have 'Fortinet' on my work computer that blocks all the pics and vids you guys post unfortunately, but once we get our laptop up and running at home, I'll try and check 'em out.
