Quick Ju-87 question: What is this?

Recommended Posts

What is this thing found on the tail of the Ju-87 just behind the gunner seat?

 

Almost looks like a dynamite stick... Is it for seft-destruction in case of a crash landing behind enemy lines?  :lol:

Well- it`s a dive bomber, so it can deliver bombs with pin-point accuracy.

I don`t think you can compare the two really, as one was a dedicated ground-attacker, the other a (dive)Bomber only.

 

And about the looks- that is highly subjective. I find them both great- like blond and brown hair :ph34r:

Would be interesting to have a Ju87D-5 with 20mm cannons & working StuVi sight at a later point

The Ju88 has the same radio aid at the same place on top of the fuselage behind the canopy.
