I need photos and diagrams of the cannon and radar (Lichtenstein and SN-2) installations in the cockpit of the Ju 88C-6c night fighter. Can you direct me to the best sources of information on these matters? Thank you.

After a lot of digging, I found their website. Still has a link to Falkster's email address which I will try. The forum is dead where I used to go for Ju 88 info from them. It was a great resource. The Ju 88C-6c was the dedicated radar-equipped night fighter version of the Jumo heavy fighter.

I'd just like to say thank you to Jippo and team (should they read this) for their wonderful addition to this sim! The Ju-88 is among my absolute favourite planes in this sim, the cockpit is beautiful! You have made this sim substantially more enjoyable!

I have a few publications on the JU 88

One by Heinz Nowarra.

But I also have both Squadron Signal publications.

Part Two. Would be what you are after.(Not expensive).

With nice drawings/ Pics of the C-6 Equiped with Lichtenstien BC and Fug 212 C-1.
Also 220 SN-2 drawings and pics.

Still haven't found referance to a C-6c amongst my collection.

JU 88R Was the 801 powered version of this craft. ( The one that landed at Dyce/Aberdeen)

Here are two lousy photographs which show how incredibly cramped the Ju 88C cockpit was---note the MG17 belt drums between the pilot's feet (!), and MGFF cannon right beside him:

Falkster should have a contact for jippo.yes,they started models for all the ju88's
they then gave them to oleg,who if i remember correctly said they didn't have time to include
them all,as they were just starting storm of war.little knowing 3 years later,we would be still playing il2.

Many thanks, wunsch. I ordered the C-6 manual, which, unfortunately lacks information on the observer's radar scanner(s).
