Info about the development of carrier based airplanes:
Regarding the Me 109, the "Marineflieger" asked the "Luftzeugamt" (aerial weapon procurement directory) to ask Messerschmitt to develop a new type of wing, with inward folding landing gear (like in the Fw 190) and with a 20mm canon at the wing root. This transformation was such a success that from there on all Me 109 began being built with this type of wing, except the feature of the folding tips like the marine version had. Regarding the Ju 87T the major change to the land version was the engine, a Junkers Jumo 213 was installed with a takeoff power of 1.750 hp thanks to a better performing supercharger with intercooling system. Several other detail chyanges were also made to improve the aerodynamics and above all the slow flying performance thus allowing landings even without the braking cables, provided the head wind was at 60 km/h minimum (wind speed combined with the ships own speed).
