The Junkers Ju 88 was a twin-engine multi-role aircraft operated by the German Luftwaffe during World War II. Designed in the mid-1930s, it became one of the most versatile combat aircraft of the war and proved to be suited for almost any role. First flown on December 21 1936, the Ju 88 entered operational service in 1939. It was used successfully as a fighter-bomber, dive bomber torpedo bomber, heavy fighter, night fighter, reconnaissance aircraft and even as a flying bomb during the closing stages of the war. The Ju 88 was produced until 1945, with more than 16,000 built in dozens of variants.
