Title: JU-86R/P
Post by: ANDYTOTHED on March 29, 2012, 09:22:57 AM
this morning I noticed, in my DBW install, the HF IXE spitfire. I had heard of the HF marks, the ones that flew abnormally high for piston aircraft 42,500 feet being what on source tells me. they also say first impressions do count. I have never had a better experience with a merlin. It was the first piston that I have ever flown that will climb above 40,000. Anywho this got me thinking, what did these aircraft shoot down and do we have those, my searching through my long selectable aircraft list is no, so here is a request

JU-86P

These two aircraft were used for high altitude recon and in the case of the P sometimes as high altitude bombers over england. to reach the impressive altitude of 45,000+ feet, they used a pair of turbo charged diesel engines with nitrous oxide injection.

Unfortunately, when used for high-altitude bombing, they could only carry a bombload of 551lbs if they wanted to reach their service ceiling. 3 Ps were lost over north africa due to a modified spitfire V. Later when Rs started flying over the UK, one was nearly shot down by a HF-IXE spitfire

The WIP bird is an earlier version judging by the pics, not a P or an R.......

Gerrit is correct, that was a JU-86D or E, I can't have a good look at it because my computer is being a bit slow.
