Junkers Ju-52 ARF 20 EP
A particular german transport aircraft
The Ju 52 was characterized by, like the previous role of the Junkers aircraft, the all-metal construction covered with corrugated metal panels, a typical German design company. Parts and pieces attached to the aircraft structure and the corrugated metal (however much stronger than metal tubing and fabric) generated a stronger air resistance, however, was more stable at gusts of side wind.
The prototype was powered by a single engine, but it was soon proved to be underpowered for the purpose that was intended. In April 1931 two more engines were installed on the wings reaching remarkable performance and gaining the final three-engine configuration and becoming the pre-series model. The production of the new model began immediately.
