|Somewhere near Moscow, hauling fallschirmjäger.
|The Ju 52, despite an intimidating dashboard, is a fairly easy to fly aircraft.
|This DLC aircraft is arguably the best virtual model of the real thing. This is one of the IL-2 virtual cockpits where you really long for being able to click those panels.
|Extra paint jobs are included.
|Damn! I don't envy the guy in this turret.
|The DLC does not include extra content like a campaign, but surely you can fly the Ju 52 in the already released campaigns. Nonetheless, one very cool thing of this DLC aircraft is the ability to carry and drop fallschirmjäger.
|The cream of the crop heads east for a special mission.
|The detail level of these paratroopers, including animations is quite impressive.
|When properly trimmed, the virtual Ju 52 almost lands itself. In this screenshot, I landed in a remote clear area with no problem. But I got stuck and could not take off again.
|A drop in the Eastern front, somewhere near Moscow.
|Note the winter smocks this paratrooper is wearing.

I have to confess that after dropping hundreds of paratroopers, the lack of action after they land is a bit disappointing. But I still have to explore what it can be done with the mission editor to move them out of the LZ.
