Junkers Ju 52
The Junkers Ju 52 nicknamed
"Tante Ju" (Auntie Ju) and "Iron
Annie" was a civilian airliner and military
transport aircraft and bomber manufactured between 1932
and 1945 by Junkers.
Originally prototyped in 1930 with one engine by Ernst
Zindel in the Junkers works at Dessau, its corrugated
metal fuselage gave a characteristic boxy appearance.
Three BMW Hornet engines improved performance and load
carrying abilities. As a Lufthansa airliner, the Ju52
could seat seventeen, reaching Rome from Berlin in 8
hours. Export models were also built with Pratt &
Whitney Wasp and Bristol Pegasus engines.
The Ju 52 first saw military service in the Spanish Civil
War with roles as a bomber and as a transport, including
paratroop drops. The Luftwaffe relied on the Ju52 for
transport roles during World War II. Compared to
fighters, it was slow (top speed 165 mph) and lightly
armed, so an escort was always necessary; many were shot
While most were destroyed following war's end, a small
number was manufactured after 1945 in France and Spain.
Some continued in productive service by the Swiss air
force until the 1980's. Quite a few are still airworthy
and in regular use today
Ju52 Military use 1939-45
In 1934, Junkers received orders to produce a bomber
version of the Ju 52/3m to serve as interim equipment for
the bomber units of the still secret Luftwaffe until it
could be replaced by the purpose designed Dornier Do 11.
Two bomb-bays were fitted, capable of holding up to 1,500
kg (3,300 ) of bombs, while defensive armament consisted
of two 7.92mm MG 15 machine guns, one in an open dorsal
position, and one in a retractable "dustbin"
ventral position, which could be manually winched down
from the fuselage to protect the aircraft from attacks
from below. The bomber could be easily converted to serve
in the transport role. The Dornier Do 11 was a failure,
however, and the Junkers ended up being acquired in much
larger numbers than at first expected, with the type
being the Luftwaffe's main bomber until more modern
aircraft such as the Heinkel He 111, Junkers Ju 86 and
Dornier Do 17 entered into service.
The Ju 52 first saw military service in the Spanish Civil
War against the Spanish Republic. It was one of the first
aircraft delivered to the fraction of the army in revolt
in July 1936 as both a bomber and transport. In the
former role, it participated in the bombing of Guernica.
No more of the bomber variant were built after this war,
though it was again used as a bomber during the bombing
of Warsaw during the Invasion of Poland of September
1939. The Luftwaffe then relied on the Ju 52 for
transport roles during World War II, including paratroop
Ju52 Postwar use
Various Junkers Ju 52s continued in military and civilian
use following World War II. In 1956, the Portuguese Air
Force, who was already using the Ju 52s as a transport
plane, employed the type as a paratroop drop aircraft for
its newly organized elite parachute forces, later known
as the Batalhao de Ca?adores P?raquedistas. The
paratroopers used the Ju 52 in several combat operations
in Angola and other Portuguese African colonies before
gradually phasing it out of service in the 1960s.
The Swiss Air Force also operated the Ju 52 from 1939 to
1982 when three aircraft remained in operation, probably
the last and longest service in any air force. They are
still in flying condition and together with a CASA 352
can be booked for sightseeing tours with Ju-Air.
Ju 52/3m of British European Airways in 1947
During the 1950s the Ju 52 was also used by the French
Air Force during the Indo-China War as a bomber. The
usage of these Junkers was quite limited.
The Spanish Air Force operated the Ju 52, nicknamed Pava,
until well into the 1970s. Escuadr?n 721 flying the
Spanish-built versions, was employed in training
parachutists from Alcantarilla Air Base near Murcia.
Some military Ju 52s were converted to civilian use. For
example, British European Airways operated eleven
ex-Luftwaffe Ju 52/3mg8e machines, taken over by the RAF,
between 1946 and retirement in 1947 on intra-U.K. routes
before Dakotas took over. French airlines such as Societe
de Transports Aeriens and Air France flew Toucans in the
late 1940s and early 1950s.

never developed four-engine bombers in any
significant numbers, and was thus unable to
conduct an effective long-range strategic bombing
campaign against either the Russians or the
Western Allies. The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was the
most versatile and widely-produced fighter
aircraft operated by the Luftwaffe and was
designed when biplanes were still standard. Many
versions of this aircraft were made. The engine,
a liquid cooled Mercedes-Benz DB 601, initially
generated up to almost 1,000 hp (750 kW). This
power increased as direct fuel injection was
introduced to the engines. The kill ratio (almost
9:1) made this plane far superior than any of the
other German fighters during the war. In this
regard it was followed by the Focke-Wulf Fw 190
at 4:1. This plane had relatively short wings and
was powered by a radial BMW engine. The Junkers
Ju 87 Stuka was a main asset for Blitzkrieg, able
to place bombs with deadly accuracy. The leader
of the Luftwaffe was Hermann G?ring, a World War
I fighter ace and former commander of Manfred von
Richthofen's famous JG 1 (aka "The Flying
Circus") who had joined the Nazi party in
its early stages.

the summer and autumn of 1940, the Luftwaffe lost
the Battle of Britain over the skies of England,
the first all-air battle. Following the military
failures on the Eastern Front, from 1942 onwards,
the Luftwaffe went into a steady, gradual decline
that saw it outnumbered and overwhelmed by the
sheer number of Allied aircraft being deployed
against it. Towards the end of the war, the
Luftwaffe was no longer a major factor, and
despite fielding advanced aircraft like the
Messerschmitt Me 262, Heinkel He 162, Arado Ar
234, and Me 163 was crippled by fuel shortages
and a lack of trained pilots. There was also very
little time to develop these aircraft, and could
not be produced fast enough by the Germans, so
the jets and rockets proved to be "too
little too late."
