Survivability and armour

  • 20 mm steel - bulkhead behind cockpit
  • 60 mm bulletproof glass - armoured windscreen
  • 58 mm bulletproof glass - cockpit sides
  • 60 mm bulletproof glass - top gunner

Armaments

Offensive armament

The Ju 88 C-6 is armed with:

  • 1 x 20 mm MG FF/M cannon, nose-mounted (120 rpg)
  • 2 x 20 mm MG FF/M cannon, chin-mounted (120 rpg = 240 total)
  • 3 x 7.92 mm MG 17 machine gun (800 rpg right, 1,000 rpg left = 2,800 total)

Suspended armament

Main article: SC50JA (50 kg)

The options available for the Ju 88 C-6 are:

  • Without load
  • 20 x 50 kg SC50JA bombs

Defensive armament

Main article: MG 81 (7.92 mm)

The Ju 88 C-6 is armed with:

  • 1 x 7.92 mm MG 81 machine gun, 2 x dorsal turret (1,000 rpg = 2,000 total)
  • 2 x 7.92 mm MG 81 machine gun, ventral turret (900 + 1,800 rpg = 2,700 total)

Usage in the battles

Any fighter poses a threat to the Ju 88. At BR 2.7 you will either face low rank monoplanes, which should be easy to boom and zoom or simply fly away from, or you could be facing cannon armed spitfires, P-39s and P-38s, which will be faster, more maneuverable and even more heavily armed than you are.

Bombers are often the main target for Ju 88 pilots. They can be easily caught and disposed of with the powerful cannons. Luckily, many bombers at this BR have only light machine guns as defensive armament, making them easy targets and not particularly threatening. However, there are some exceptions.

Beaufort Mk VIII - The Beaufort is fast and has a powerful twin 50 cal turret at the back. This can engage you at long range and cause serious damage to your aircraft. Try to approach it from underneath or in a head on, a blind spot for the defensive 50 cal turret.

B-34 - Same as the Beaufort, it has a powerful turret with twin 50 cals. Approaching from behind is very dangerous. This aircraft also has good offensive armament, so approaching from the front is dangerous too. The best option is to hit it from underneath.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 3 x 20 mm MG FF/M cannons will make short work of any air target
  • Decent defensive armament with good coverage
  • Internal bomb bay, meaning the bombload affects weight, but not drag
  • All guns are centre-mounted, making them extremely deadly;

  • Can be used as both a bomber, ground attacker, and heavy fighter;
  • Very durable;
  • Good climb rate;
  • Can be used effectively as a boom and zoom fighter;
  • Gets the attacker spawn in AB;

Cons:

  • Guns are sighted to aim below the nose tip of the plane, making it very awkward to aim in a dogfight
  • Single seat fighters are more manoeuvrable
  • Sluggish velocity and rate of fire of cannons
  • Relatively low rip speed somewhat limits effectiveness at boom and zoom;

  • Engines are easily damaged;
  • Cannot fly with one engine;

  • Although it can accomplish many roles, it excels at none of them;
  • No airbrakes, unlike the bomber variants of Ju 88 series.

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 an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.

Media

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.

Read also

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example,

  • reference to the series of the aircraft;
  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.

  • topic on the official game forum;
  • page on aircraft encyclopedia;
  • other literature.
