Ju 87G MG81z mounting?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


Does anyone of you have photo's / drawings of the mounting / cradle with which the MG81z was attached to the airframe? I noticed that the visors were attached to the sliding canopy. Hasegawa misuses the spent casings chute as mounting for the MG. A Google search by me didn't yield results in relation to clear illustrations of the mounting in the Stuka... Maybe one of you has the answer for me!

Thanks Matt, that's indeed very helpful! At least it gives an idea how the MG was attached. I have the distinct impression that as well in the early Ju 87's as in the later versions, the MG was taken to the aircraft by the Schütze and installed only just prior to take-off, to be taken from the aircraft after the mission...
