To me, calling another forum member on a claim of his - no matter how much they dodge, weave and obfuscate - is a matter of principle, and also of forum policy in general.
And what is the forum policy on Ad hominem attacks? http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 5#p1638927
Of all the medical problems I may have or have had in my life, a mental disorder or similar is not among them. However, I chose to let your frankly disgusting comment ride. There are most likely people on this forum with real such disorders - and we both
know of one on the Forum staff - what's the Forum's policy on insulting or derogating their misfortunes?
I am perfectly willing - when we find the remaining material - to say I was wrong, if/when that's the case; that's what the process of acquiring information is about - learning
So we are agreed that, in the current absence of evidence to the contrary, military versions of the Ju-52 did not carry their own fuel in their fuselages?
We are agreed that versions from the /3mg5e onwards did not carry their own fuel in their fuselages. That's what we have evidence for, courtesy of your good self.
But apart from your comment above -
'Auxiliary bomber' Range improved due to the inclusion of 2,400 litre fuel tanks.
...we still don't know
anything about the fuel system on the last few interim versions...except going from your reference it changed away
from something else for the /3mg3e. "Reichweitenerhöhung" as in "Reichweitehohung durch kraftstoffbehälter fur 2,400 liter
" from P.69 of Erfurth & Miertsch's Vom Original zom Modell: Junkers Ju 52-Militarversionen
means "range extended"...
Because this raises questions all of its own
- for as we can see from the Zivilversionen
fuel system diagram I posted up...as you've frequently pointed out
, the "dedicated" tankage THERE is ALSO
listed as being for 2,400 litres
So - there's EITHER something amiss which one or other or both of the two ranges, Zivil-
- BOTH of them from Erfurth & Miertsch! - OR
Erfurth & Miertsch's use of the term "reichweitenerhöhung"!
For how is 2,400 litres extended over 2,400 litres?
As for this -
Ju 52/3mg1e and Ju 52/3mg2e
Civilian versions with BMW 132 A/C/D engines.
...the 2e was also powered by 132E
Twenty years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs....
