I believe it is a long-range fuel tank. I don't think it was ever used, instead the 110 used two smaller tanks under the wings to extend range.

The stars look photoshopped (rather crappily) to me.

If I was in world war II they‚'d call me ‚ėSpitfire‚'
‚ėCause you know that I can

the top star does look 'shopped. By the way - there are multiple galleries without links on that site.

There are 6 ww2 gallers.

http://www.aeronautics.ru/archive/wwii/photos/gallery_005/Stuka's%20final%20dive.jpg

the caption says "Stuka's final dive.jpg" so it must be shot down...if not can it pull up in time?

Also - that stuka is dead. There is NO way he can pull out in time.

I did not catch the name - funny I was JUing the past week and many times I could not pull out in time.

You're absolutely right - UB code is kaputt. Here I put it on diff server.

Amazing!

That sums it up for me. These photos put things in retrospective so well. For a guy who spends hours on IL-2 this was a moving experience. It makes you feel the joy and pain of the people who fought that war.

Thank you so much for posting the link here

Sunburst; that's definitely a Fokker G.I there. Either a German one, or a Dutch one fighting those Ju-52's. Very, very interesting picture indeed.

looks like a P-47 prototype, or an experimental variant.

I'd hazard to guess it's an XP-72, XP-47J, or some other p-47 prototype variant.

BTW: The 110 with the large bulge under it is a Bf-110D1 I think.

It was a huge main fuel tank made of plywood and canvass covering IIRC. Heavy and draggy, someitmes failed to jettison. Was replaced by the D-2, with one smaller tank under each wing.

Similar to the G-2 we have now with wing tanks.
