Ju 88 C and R Zerstörer

Did Ruststand M2 mean four external bomb racks? I'm sure I have the necessary reference somewhere but I can't find it at the moment.

Thanks in advance.

Very probably but, like I said, I couldn't find the reference and just at the moment I'm more interested in a definition of M2 than a language lesson. But please don't think I'm not touched by your concern for my education.

I don´t find that many C-6 or R-2 with any ETC´s, so I think your M2 means the equipment in Rear-Bay (definition coming up from A-1 data..)
Your education is not a concern of any of my worries.

1) Thank you very much. The basis for my enquiry was a deciphered message of 4 December 1943:
CX/MSS/T23/20
Source was able to copy a file of reports dated 4/12.

((7)) At 1213. (Roman) I./ZG 1 reports: 15 Ju 88 being re-equipped with M2. Ready at Tours by 1600 hrs.
I should add that this wasn't really happening, the signal related to an anti-invasion war game.

2) "concern of any of my worries" … while we're improving one another's language skills, those words are tautologous.

Nick,

You will find full description of that Rüstsatz M 2 in the following manual:
D.(Luft) T. 2088 C-6, Teil 12 G. If you don't find it in any internet site, you can always buy it from Udo Hafner.

Matti

Re: Ju 88 C and R Zerstörer

Thanks everyone, this is interesting because there are references to the unit dropping AB 23 and SD 2 earlier in the same war game (which I think was purely a paper exercise). The inference may be that some of I./ZG 1's aircraft were already capable of carrying bombs but that others had to be refitted.
