Hi Guys,

On a negative note, in some 1960s and 1970s English-language magazines it was reported that the Romanians received Ju87Bs. This was NOT true. As outlined above, they only ever received variants of the Ju87D.

Cheers,

Sid.

I was under the impression that all Ju-87s from the initial "D" models on did away with the siren?

Don't forget how unflexible are the Germans...
Belcin said ,the Germ.were outraged when the Romanian did those modifications,but soon adapted them too.

The quotation is a typical prejudice... and definitely wrong, sorry (I am german).

Another topic:
I always thought the sirenes as well as the divebreaks were removed because they lowered v_max of the Ju87... what's up about this bomb-explosion-story?

Anyone heard of bombs going off on Ju87 due to siren shortcut ?
Yogy fortunatelly that can be taken as a compliment as opposed to the prejudices related to romanians. What C2 probably meant was that Germans are more inclined to repecting rules and regulations then romanians are :]

This Stukas delivered to Romania in version D-5 were made in Slovakia. The company name is STL Trencianske Biskupice - STL for Slovak factory for aircrafts. We were last country producing them. Production line started in late 1943. I thing planning number was 25 per month - 75% for Germany 25% Slovakia. They made around 50 before slovak uprising broke out in summer 44.

In fact, Romania tried to buy 40 Ju87B in 1940.
The order for 40 planes was made after Romanians found out that Germans sold 2 Ju87B and 1-4 Ju87A to Hungary.
Knowing what Romanians and Hungarians would do with Ju-87s (bomb each other), Hitler denied Romanian order and, until 1943, blocked any Ju87 delivery to both countries.
In 1943, needing more crews for his bombers, he agreed to deliver Ju87s to Romania and Hungary but in special conditions:
- he only LOANED the planes to Romanians, allowing them to put Romanian marks on the planes;
- he sold planes to Hungarians but, when retiring from the east front, Hungarians have to deliver back the planes to the Germans.
