Maybe not, Hentschel flew a total of 1.400 missions, 1.200 with Hans-Ulrich Rudel.
From this point of view it's a poor ratio

It's amazing what you can do out of desperation when you are scared $h!+less because somebody in a grossly superior plane is trying to kill you... :thumbsup:

Did Rudel's Stukas retain the original defensive MGs or was he permitted to change it to something bigger like a MG151/20 ?

Well, they also used their front guns...

"During the engagement, one Fulmar of Blue Section was shot down.

Crewed by Sub Lt Lowe and observer Kensett, the Fulmar had been seen to shoot down a Ju87 as another moved on to its tail. An ensuing burst of machine-gun fire killed Kensett and wounded Lowe in the shoulder. The fighter ditched near the destroyer HMS Nubian, but Lowe was not seen to get out of the cockpit. Some 30 minutes later, HMS Jaguar spotted Lowe bobbing in the water by pure chance."

Look up the Kirkeness raid, the Stukas also went hunting there.
