Hi all,

i like to know if there were any Ju88G-1 variants with 'schräge Musik'. I have never seen any photo showing this. There are such showing Dorniers, Heinkels, Bf110Gs and of course Ju88G-6.
Knowing there were Nachrüstsätze for the later installment of the upward firing guns i wonder if there are any Ju88G-1 variants documented.

Thank you very much

Armin

Thanks a lot guys!

The two with the double guns are of very interest. Strassner's was an experimental unigue installment of a single cannon on the nose.
If anyone knows more Ju88G-1 pics with upward firing double guns it would be great to post it here.

Thank you very much

Armin
