During ww2, the Luftwaffe tested some versions of his famous dive bomber JU-87 Stuka. The link below provides a small colection of pictures, some rare and unknown to me, these versions. I hope you enjoy.

The stuka with the two blisters on the wings with plexiglass panels; what were they supposed to be for ?
Two extra men being able to turn the wing canon a few degrees for better accuracy ?

FDR - on a very quick research, this seems to have been a variant of the Ju-87 D intended to allow the aircraft to pick up shot-down pilots who would be carried in the wing pods. I am not sure whether it was ever adopted. I would have thought that that the inclusion of wing pods (let alone downed pilots) would have added considerably to the already considerable difficulty of flying this crate ... Best regards, JR.
