First, I dont think the Ju 87 ever used 2000kg bombs...I think the maximum allowed weapon was a 1800kg bomb...but it still packs a punch! Second, Silian. I dont think that is the case. According to my sources, some versions of the D-4 carried MG151/20s, and the D-5 through D-8 did it. They all had 180rpg, usually splitted up in 2:2:2 sequence of different ammo types. Third: The Hs 129B-3/Wa cant replace the "NukaStuka" on maps...they are to distinct different planes, with different roles. The "NukaStuka" aint supposed to bomb a tank. More like bombing troop-concentrations.

Should they be on El Alamein then? My sources say the D-3 wasn't produced until late 1942 and with the second battle of El Alamein in November 1942 it is certainly questionable if they haven't been brought there by a secret nazi timemachine...

The D-4 was a torpedo bomber and was based off the D-1 and D-3, many were converted back to divebombers as the He 111H and Ju 88A-17 were far more effective. I'll admit that i was wrong about the D-5 but i highly doubt that any D-4's were armed with MG151/20s.

The later-war Stukas had 20mm guns in place of 7.92mm guns to aid in their ground attack role. I don't know if El Al could be considered Late-War though...

As for defensive armorment, it was mainly MG81 and MG15s. Very few MG131/MG151 or MG151/20 or MG-FF guns were used as turret mounts for the German forces. The 131 and 151 were common offensive armorments and the MG-FF and MG151/20 were incredibly common in offensive mounts but most German turret gunners had 7.92mm unless the plane was altered specifically.

King_Nothing100That's an 1/6th model MG34 in that picture, and the ones in the movies were still modified 34's IIRC.

I really could care less. Just looking for something to add humor to the thread. I have seen both though, MG34s and 15s. God, not the 129! Do you have any idea how slow that thing is? *gag*

I know it was supposed to be a torpedo-bomber, but it could still conduct "normal" attacks and even dive-bombing. I will quote a text from "Junker Ju 87 Stuka" by Manfred Griehl.

The majority of the D-4 machines were equipped with flame eliminiators and, on contrast to the three previous D versions, prossesed a fixed, forward firing armament of two MG151/20 cannons. For these an ammunition supply of 180 rounds per gun were carried.

Now, I cant remember how many D-4s that were built, but I dont think it were too many.
