Junkers Ju 187

I thought that this "upgraded Super Stuka" was very interesting. I think the rotating tail is a rather interesting idea, but I like the under-carriage on the Ju87 better.

Super Stuka

That is an interesting plane. It looks so funny with the tail turned down like that. I can see how that would enable the rear gunner to have a better view. I understand, though, that the Super Stuka was not very "Super", the improvements did not enhance the aircraft at all...so they discontinued the Super Stuka altogether. Shocked
