Necro much? The last post in this thread, before the two above mine, was in July of this year.

To me necroing a thread in the suggestion forum is much better than constantly seeing new threads about the same or similar idea(s). Keeps the forum more tidy and all the info in one place. Additionally, it shows better how strongly a suggestion is supported, otherwise the support is split up over many threads and tends to get lost. It's annoying to see same ideas getting over and over again posted, when there are already multiple GOOD entries for the same thing.

 

Best regards,

 

Phil

I would love to see this plane in game, 3 engines is better than two, so I would fly this thing rather than fly one of those He-111s

Tante Ju is such an iconic plane that having only one of them could never be enough.
 
I give you the Ju-52 floatplane!

Neither did I until today!

Just made a quick search on the forums and seems like the Ju 52 has been asked for multiple times by many players over the years (just never here in suggestions). So, Gajin pleeeease!

As the OP hasn't been active on the forums for the past few months I'll make an overview post here. I'll try to keep it up to date with any new info. Any help with collecting more data would be great!

 

The Junkers Ju-52

 

junkers-ju-52-adam-romanowicz.jpg

 
Why do we need a Ju-52 in War Thunder?

  • 'Tante Ju' or 'Iron Annie' is an iconic plane from the era. It is one of those planes loved by aircraft enthusiasts around the world. A dozen countries put it on their stamps and it featured in the opening scene of the classic 'Where Eagles Dare' movie.
  • It was produced in large numbers (about 5000) and was much used during the war. During WWII it was the luftwaffe's main transport aircraft, yet it was also used as a bomber. It was in military service in various countries from the '30s till the '80s (!). They were used as a bomber during the Spanish Civil war, the German Invasion of Poland, the Colombia-Peru War and the Indo-China War as well as some other conflicts.
  • It fits the time frame and many of its contemporaries are already ingame. During the Spanish Civil War it was escorted by he-51s and hunted upon by I-15s and I-16s. Its republican competitor was the SB 2M.
  • Germany has only 1 bomber at tier I. The Ju-52 could fill this 'gap' in the research tree. Moreover the German tier I & II (6 from tier I and 5 from tier II) will lose a lot of planes when the new Italian tree is launched. The Ju-52 could help to fill it up again.
  • Multiple models could be included. If the developers feel it is to much effort for a single tier I plane they could add multiple versions as the models don't vary a lot. Just like is the case for the SB 2M or S.79. Nevertheless, they are sufficiently different to make them interesting to play. (float plane version, bomber escort version, ...)

Tier and location in the tree
 
The Ju-52 is a slow plane, with few defensive armaments, but with a decent bomb load (up to 1500 Kg) which it carried internally. This, combined with its early introduction date, makes it a perfect tier I bomber, right at the beginning of the German bomber line before the He 111 H-3. This is also how it was historically.
 
Its BR would probably be something around 1.7, just like the early SB 2M we have in game.

Models
 
The Ju 52 is mostly known as a transport or passenger plane. Yet many Ju 52's were also used as a bomber and earlier versions were designed for a dual bomber / transport role. The plane was easy to convert from one role to another.
 
Obviously we don't need to add all the models, but it might be useful to collect as much data as we can. If someone has proper original sources: let me know! Note that all models listed below also existed as transport or passenger planes. The earlier versions (ge and g3e) were used as a bomber on a large scale, mainly during the Spanish Civil War. Later models didn't have bombing as a primary role but if needed they could perform this role. They retained their "Kampfgruppe zur besondern Verwendung" status (bomber wing for special purposes) until 1943. The French even used some of their Ju-52s as a bomber in the '60s!

Junkers Ju 52/3m ge (auxiliary bomber)
 
These were converted civilian planes while the g3e was in production. As such they seem to be less standardised. Some had the "dustbin turret", others didn't.

Junkers Ju 52/3m g4e (auxiliary bomber - night bomber)
 
This version was the successor of the g3e. Among others, it was used by the Condor Legion in Spain. It had a number of internal improvements, a stronger undercarriage and a tail wheel instead of a tail skid. It has less defensive armament than the g3e. After 1937 its primary role in Spain became transport rather than bombing given the arrival of newer faster planes such as the He 111. Over 500 were build.

Junkers Ju 52/3m g7e (auxiliary bomber)
 
From 1941 onward, the Junkers Ju 52/3m g7e was built. It was based on the Junkers Ju 52/3m g5e, but had a number of improvements: an autopilot, a larger starboard-side loading hatch, and a rearward extension of the upper part of the central engine. It was meant as a transport plane as the Ju-52 had become wholly incapable as a bomber. Yet it could be used as one if needed. The bombs were dropped from the cargo hold.

I am glad to see someone else is trying to keep this forum alive. The Ju-52 is near the top of my list of most wanted planes, and it would be a great addition to the German bomber branch. Keep it up! Edited by LM002

Good work.

Its iconic, historically used as a bomber and deserves inclusion more than 90pct of the planes in suggestions.

OP, would you mind adding a poll to this thread?  As was demonstrated on my thread for adding the Ki-43-III Otsu (which was eventually added to the game in 1.45 - while I don't know if this is true, I'd like to think I made a difference), there might be a lot more people who want this aircraft added than just those who comment on the thread - giving my Ki-43-III Otsu thread as an example, maybe less than twenty different people, not counting mods, posted on the thread, but over a hundred people VOTED to show their support.

I agree with this guy!

I've send a PM to the OP. Let's hope he gets it. Otherwise we might have to ask a mod.

 

I've also updated the summary post(s). I'm mainly looking for more info on the converted civilian ge model and the float planes. If anyone has something on them: please post!

Why don't you keep making more suggestions? It seems like your Ki-43-III one was pretty successful.

Z3r0_ made the suggestion for the Ki-43-III, not me. ;)s

 

Also: more info added to the overview post.

I most certainly will.  I'm currently collecting information for a couple of aircraft and tank suggestions as we speak.  That being said, given the time of year it is, I'll have to do so in between various...distractions.

I think this is an excellent idea, and an event circling around Crete would be nice. There's also the option to go with a hypothetical scenario, Operation Herkules, wich was the planned (but never executed) assault on Malta.

Would somebody mind making a signature of sorts to show your support for adding the Ju-52 bomber variants to War Thunder?  This could help garner some additional support and publicity and increase the odds of it being considered by Gaijin.

Why not just have one of the guys on the main forum make one of those real good looking drawings that you see as most people's signatures?
