This kit from Border Models is a whole new form! The Ju87 G-1 was an anti-tank attack aircraft developed to repel Soviet tanks; it was equipped with two 37mm Flak 18 guns under the main wing. In 1942. a plan to carry out an attack against Soviet tanks using the Stuka was implemented, and in December a prototype aircraft based on the Ju87d-1 with a cannon under the wing was built and tested. The results of this test were very satisfactory and it was confirmed that the 37mm gun could disable a tank with a single shot by hitting the engine section at the rear of the tank. The G-2 was based on the D-5 hull and had the 37mm gun mounted on the underside of both wings, just like the G-1, and the 20mm gun on the wings was removed. The G-1 and G-2 were used primarily on the Eastern Front, where they proved very effective in attacking Soviet tank units.
This kit includes an exact reproduction of the cockpit and engine; decals for two versions are included. As a bonus, the first series of this kit also includes a resin figure of legendary ace pilot Hans Ulrich Rudel! (This item is only available with the first series of this kit. If your kit does not include this item, it was not included in the first production run.)
