Survivability and armour

  • 4-8 mm of armour in the fuselage.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: MG 151/20 (20 mm)

The Ju 87 D-5 is armed with:

  • 2 х 20 mm MG 151 cannons, (500 rpg = 1,000 total)

The stock two 20mm is not very effective with the aircraft's role or aerodynamics.

Suspended armament

The Ju 87 D-5 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • 1 х 250 kg SC250JA bomb
  • 4 х 50 kg SC50JA bomb + 1 х 250 kg SC250JA bomb
  • 2 х 250 kg SC250JA bomb + 1 х 250 kg SC250JA bomb
  • 1 х 500 kg SC500K bomb
  • 4 х 50 kg SC50JA bomb + 1 х 500 kg SC500K bomb
  • 2 х 250 kg SC250JA bomb + 1 х 500 kg SC500K bomb
  • 12 х 7.92 mm MG 81 machine gun, suspended (250 rpg = 3,000 total)
  • 4 х 20 mm MG 151 cannon, suspended (200 rpg = 800 total)

The suspended 12x 7.92 mm deals with enemy aircraft pretty well, though runs out of ammo quickly. It is most suited for beginners since the traces are more visible. The suspended four 20 mm downs bombers and fighters sufficiently.

Defensive armament

Main article: MG 81 (7.92 mm)

The Ju 87 D-5 is defended by:

  • 2 х 7.92 mm MG 81 machine gun, dorsal turret (700 rpg = 1,400 total)

Turret 7.92 mm is somewhat useful distracting enemies, but does not deal a lot of damage.

Usage in battles

The Ju 87 D-5 should not be used as a bomber, since its maximum bombload of 2x 250kg and 1x 500kg does not hold up at its BR. It is excellent for ground strikes, both with the 7.92 mm guns and the 20 mm cannons. The 20mm is recommended, because the 7.92 mm runs out of ammo fairly fast. The best use your Ju 87 D-5 is bomber hunting. It spawns at the bomber altitude of 3,000-3,500 m (10,000-12,000 ft). One burst of the 20mm cannons, especially with the suspended armaments and while using the air target belt, is enough to destroy a bomber and even fighters.

Pros and cons

Summarize and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
