German aircrafts used by Yugoslavia

Post by K.Kocjancic » 08 Jul 2003 18:25

I know, that Yugoslavia bought some Bf. 109 before the war (they were with-out radios), but did Yugoslavia had any JU 87 Stuka's?

Hi!

According to this: http://world.std.com/~Ted7/minoraf.htm the answer is no. However there were Do 17K`s.

Yes, I thought so too.

The reason for asking was, because I was reading a auto-biografy of Slovene soldier in Yugoslav army (he was in Belgrade 1941); he wrote that he saw Yugoslav Stukas.

The only German bomber in Yugoslavian Air Force was the Dornier Do 17K.
Yugoslavia bought 20 Do 17K's in autumn, 1937 and the licence of the type also. Later they manufactured 50 Do 17Ka's.

Foreign Ju 87 users in combat: Italy, Hungary, Rumania.
