Ju 52 gunship photos?

Post by Dili » 23 Jul 2019 15:39

Seems there was a small batch of Ju 52 employed in Mediterranean that were armed with a MG151 turret besides the usual MG 17, plus the it appears the basket machine gun that was employed in bomber version in 1930's was returned.

I am looking for photos to confirm this drawing i have found on the web.

Ju 52 ND+AN was at Tarnewitz airfield from 1940 to 1944 serving as a testbed. Id did not look anything like this drawing.

A picture it's hard to find, because only 12 aircrafts were converted as escort gunship during its service with KG z.b.V. 1 in Crete.
