Re: Junkers Projects and Prototypes of WW II

Hi!
Junkers Ju 488 V-401, V-402 and V-403 drawings.
No.2 drawing is named V-403, but perhaps it's a mistake.
Or No.1 picture shows V-402 and No.2 picture shows V-401. I'm not sure. Please someone teach me.

luft46 seems to say that No.2 drawing shows V-401.
No defensive armament was to be fitted to either the V401 or V402. Fuselage tail end shape of No.1 drawing and No.2 drawing is different.

I imagine that V-403 outside undercarriages are drop undercarriage, because outside engine nacell size are to small to retract undercarriage. Please confirm No.1 drawing, especially engine nacelle.
Or outside undercarriage were twisted 90 degree and retracted? Wing trailing edge shape shows this mechanism? Any way inside engine nacelle is very large. Why? This size could retract double tire?

Perhaps Junkers used thin wing for high speed, so support for outer engine was needed on the ground.German engineers loved high speed very much ;D
V-401 MODEL.

V-401 and V-402 had turbocharged BMW801TJ aircooling radial engine. You can see turbocharger and intercooler in 801TJ pictures.
We can see BMW801TJ's ram air intake for turbocharger in the bottom picture. But I can't find this intake in three side view drawing.???

I simply love the Ju-388. It combines the sleek look of the Ju-188 with performance similar to the Ju-288.

Now this next thing is according to Wikipedia, so I am not sure how accurate it is. In regards to all variants, the subtype numbers indicated what engine would be used:
  1. -1 = BMW 801J
  2. -2 = Jumo 222A/B or Jumo 222E/F
  3. -3 = Jumo 213E (Supercharged)
Can anyone please confirm this?

Yes, those subtypes and engines are correct.
Worth noting the K-2 equipped as a nightfighter would have BMW 801G instead of TJ, which only the day Zerstorers would have.

Definitely. Maybe even if you don't like it, but are interested in the period. This is one of the more comprehensive, well-illustrated, and well-written accounts of any aircraft that I have read in the last few years.
