I had a question regarding the Stuka types used during the Battle of Britain and their armor and armaments.

Though I have toiled several hours of research I cannot find what I am looking for.

I know the Ju-87B was one of the versions used during the BoB, but what version of the B was it?

I also wish to know if there is a diagram of the B version, or if possible, anyone knows the locations and the thickness of the armor. I only ask because I wonder about the version we have in game. I know that during the BoB German planes had less armor and it was increased after it due to the losses.

Can anyone help me?

I have a couple of docs on the Stuka - I can email em, or put them somewhere if you want em.

over england summer 1940 were
Ju 87 B-1
Ju 87 B-2
Ju 87 R-1
in action.

main difference between B-1 and B-2 was the more powerfull Jumo211D (1200hp) engine instead of the 211A (1000hp).
most B-1 were modified to B-2.
R-1 is the "longrange" Stuka , same as B-1 , but can carry 2 300litres Droptanks at the outer wingstations.
one of the great neg aspects of the B series was its limited range with 480litres internal fuel.
D/G series got 780litres!

both B variants, and the R too , had not realy armour protection. there was later a modification, -/U3, wich added some.
