The Junkers Ju.88 A-1, originally designed as a light and a dive-bomber, was also used as a night-fighter, a torpedo bomber, and a special mission aircraft. The A-1 version was equipped with offensive forward-firing machine guns and it was able to dive bomb, being equipped with air brakes. Even if it proved to be able to face Allied fighters, its defensive armaments were poor and its bomb load was inadequate for its original purposes, and afterwards its rear firing dorsal gun was reinforced and a fifth gun was added in the lower nose.
The Kampfgeschwader 77 was a Luftwaffe bomber unit, fighting in all the major combat fronts over Europe until the end of the WW2. They used all main German bomber types, and they eand they extensively employed the Ju.88 A.
The Junkers Ju.88 A-4, was the most important version of all Ju.88 A–series. It entered service in very small numbers in 1939, equipped significant numbers of units during 1940, and was the most important German bomber at the start of Operation Barbarossa in 1941. The A–4 solved the problems that had limited the performance of the A–1, increasing the wingspan, using more powerful engines as 1,400hp Jumo 211F or 211J, fortifying the internal armor (especially around the cockpit), and increasing its rate of fire, carrying five guns and a bomb load of 7,936lbs.
Küstenfliegergruppe 506 (KGr506) was a coastal reconnaissance and naval support unit, used in the air offensive against England. At the end of 1941, it was equipped with the Ju.88 A–4.
