You know it well, and fear it every time you hear that whine overhead... Its a bird, a plane, its...

The NukaStuka!

This is an absolute travesty. To the best of my knowledge, this massive 2,000 kilogram bomb was only used against large ships, especially in the Kronstadt harbor region, an island naval and air base west of what was then Leningrad.

When they were employed, it was nearly impossible for the Ju-87 to take off! Yes, the performance of the NukaStuka is reduced for FH, but not nearly enough. Basically said, if a fighter sees you, and you are flying the N.S., you should be pretty much dead unless a friendly fighter helps out, or your rear gunner drives your attacker off.

Just some other things that are wrong about the Stuka in general. Since when were they armed with MG34s and MG42s? It would be great, in my opinion, if the MG15 would finally be modelled (an up to date version) and skinned. Not only would we finally get the correct defensive armament of the Ju-87, Ju-88, and He-111, but also an infantry weapon. The MG15 was employed in ground use as well, although, I would imagine, only by second rate rear echelon soldiers.

Heh, plus, you guys could give it to the Galastic Conquest team! One of the weapons used by the Episode IV Sandtroopers was a modified recreation of the MG15. Model example:

This reminds me... Will we ever get the Do-17 bomber? Do%2017%20E.jpgDo17-Z0-23s.jpg

They weren't exactly rare. They were used mainly during the Battle of Britain, but also during the early North African campaigns, as well as over Crete. It was, as far as I know, quite fast and small.

One last thing... On El Al, there is a superpowered Stuka. Its armed with dual twenty millimeter cannon, and carries, if I remember, three bombs. Yes, I know that the bomb loadout is historically correct, but I'm not so sure about the cannon replacing the machine guns. Can I get some confirmation on this, please?

Definitely agree about the MG15, has always looked strange to see MG42s in the bombers. Same goes for the Type 99 in the back of the Val. The Stuka with cannons is a Ju-87D(?), IIRC.

I never thought FH could ever give Galactic Conquest a weapon they could actually use. WWII meets a galaxy far, far away....

That's an 1/6th model MG34 in that picture, and the ones in the movies were still modified 34's IIRC.

only two versions of the Ju 87D were armed with cannons internally, the Ju 87D-7 and 'D-8 (based on the 'D-3 and 'D-5 respectively). They were armed with two MG151/20 20mm cannon in place of the 7.92mm MG17's, and a twin 7.92mm MG81Z a the rear of the cockpit (as had all the 'D models). The main distinguishing feature of the 'D-7 and '8 were the flame dampers fitted to the exhausts. Ju 87D-7: attachment.php?attachmentid=34001&stc=1 Ju 87D-8: attachment.php?attachmentid=34002&stc=1 If the 7.92mm MG15 were to be made then the 7.92mm MG81Z, 13mm MG131, 15mm MG151 and 20mm MG151/20 and MG FF would also have to be made, IMO, as all were used en masse as defensive weapons on Luftwaffe aircraft.

IMO that 1000kg bomb is already powerfull enough. I see no need for nuke'a'stuka... Specially when those pesky stukas seem to be abundant in most of the times.

i'd say "go go Henschel 129 B3 with 7.5cm pak". Less accurate and less devastating than the Nukastuka but still an interesting flying tank hunter without that "nuke" effect.
