This special unit, available in one operation in R.U.S.E. (Medjez, from the Chimera Pack), is a Ju 87 fighter-bomber, but an extremely advanced one. It does not need recon to fire, as it has it's own recon capabilities. Its weapons are two Panzerknacker cannons, capable of destroying a very resistant structure in one attack run. Instead of diving like normal Stukas, they make sweeping attacks like normal fighter-bombers. This aircraft is based off the Ju 87G. The Ju 87G had two 37mm cannons under its wings to knock out enemy tanks.


These bombers also appear in the 19th campaign mission, "West Meets East", as Hans Rudel's "Madmen" bomber pilots. Although not called modified Ju 87, they function the same, with two Panzerknacker cannons and a sweeping motion in when attacking.

History

The Ju 87G was a anti-tank aircraft deployed on the eastern front, due to the improving heavy armour on the Soviet tanks. It was slightly inspired in the Il-2 Sturmovik. Though the Ju87 was slower and less armored, it could outturn and generally had better pilots then the IL-2. The death rate for the Ju-87 was far better then their Russian counterparts.
