96 Gruppo (236,237 Sqd)

97 Gruppo (238,239 Sqd)

101 Gruppo (208,209 Sqd)

207,216, 206 Sqd were formed latter and with 237 formed the 102,103 Gruppo that received Ju-87D in 1943. The other squadriglia when Ju-87B and R2 disapeared due to losses went for Assalto mission with Fiat CR42 fighter bombers and latter Re.2002

Italy got 57 B2, 47 R2 in 1940-41, and in 1943 61 or 68 D3 models- i have both numbers with a question mark in my notes.

OK, so the Real Question is what Kind of Bombs did they use, above that's an Italian bomb, but did they use German ones as well ?

"The first direct attack on Malta was performed on September 5. Italian reconnaissance reported a large ship in Grand Harbour, but the five Stukas that sortied could not find it. As an alternative target, they hit Delimara with their 500-kg bombs"
