    Guys, you have got it all wrong!! They are just rearming the SM79, the only problem is that they have run out of bombs, so they are dropping Ju88s instead of bombs and torpedoes lol! lol!

    I am not sure about the pilot either!! lol! lol!

    Maybe the SM79 had a better bomb sight but the Ju88 could carry bigger bombs. Razz The SM79 was more successful as a torpedo bomber, being much better than anything the allies had in the MTO area
