In next week's Tides of War the Ju-88 C is listed as the reward, but from the research I've done the model of the plane is incorrect, it should be the Ju-88 P, and from what I can tell it's the P-4, armed with the 50mm Bordkanone 5, to be more specific (Some places list the real world images as the P-5 model, but the P-5 was only a proposal and never actually built). Because the P variants were the ones with the larger cannons filling the anti-tank role, whereas the C variants were heavy/night fighters. Please do more research next time, this took like 5 minutes to figure out with a Google search, and I'm not saying this to be rude, only to help you to avoid similar mistakes in the future.

    Good to know that I'm not the only one that noted that Ju-88 C is actually ju-88 P series. And atleast to me it seems like it's the P-1 and not the P-4 one with the 75mm BK 7.5cm gun as looked around the internet and it's pictures mainly goes with it's muzzle brake of BK 7.5 instead BK 5. Atleast the version of the BK 7.5 that was used on JU-88 P-1s, instead the improved/modified version that was on HS 129B-3s.

    I imagine the field gun on the bottom will be a specialistaion like on the Mosquito this week, which turns it into a different variant (the Tsetse). But I can't really dispute the other stuff.
