That's gotta be the most badass antitank aircraft ever.

I'm loving all the Eastern Front updates, awesome work!

These cannons made it less maneuverable so it should be an easy snack for my Yak :)

Description

The large numbers of Soviet tanks that had shown up on the Eastern Front had lead to the requirement for dedicated antitank aircraft. The first such design was the Henschal Hs 129, but while it proved a potent weapon, it had large and vulnerable fuel tanks and a replacement was requested.

It was decided to further develop the Ju 87, arming it with 30mm cannon and providing more armour. The Stuka ace Hans-Ulrich Rudel had had some success at killing Soviet tanks with 20mm cannon, and suggested using two 37mm Flak 18 guns in external pods as a primary armament. First flown in January 1943 on a converted D-1, the Bordkanone BK 3,7 would prove to be a lethal tank killer in the hands of Rudel and other Stuka aces.

Our Kanonenvogel (cannon bird) was made by K98, AceS and Herc.
