You're absolutely right :)

Unfortunately the link that I have for the article that contained the pics is outdated:

http://www.dallasjournal.com/articlesview.php?ID=295

the name of the article was:

"Daimler-Benz’ World War II Aircraft Engines" by Stephan Wilkinson

Back to Finland :)

Thanks Huck,

I too found (googled) your source that stated:
and their downward-aimed exhaust stacks looking like shark’s teeth, powered this
Heinkel He-111B-O, the initial Luftwaffe version

Nice plane, lost competion to the Ju-87, but reincarnated as Yokosuka D4Y Suisei 'Judy' .
New and easy, name this:

Looks like a prototype Ju 87 to me? Gull wings, spats on the wheels and it looks like a swastika on the tailplane.

It has been discussed here before.
