The development of the Junkers 88 started in 1935 as a fast-bomber. After introduction the Ju88 envolved in a multi-role combat aircraft owing to its excellent basic airframe design. 

Production of the G series aircraft, the definitive night fighters, started in 1943 with the G-1. In this G-series the tail planes were replaced by the enlarged ones with a square tip similair to those of the Ju188, and further, a large belly gun pack housing with four 20 mm cannons was attached while the nose gondola was removed. 



These modifications gave a streamlined appearance to the Ju 88. The G-6 was the second and last production model powered by a pair of Junkers Jumo213A liquid-cooled engines driving a VS-111 paddle blade propellers. 

The Ju88-G6 was the most common used German night fighter at the end of World War 2.
