1930: Real Junkers

The Adler, featured in our new project, is based on the real Junkers S 36 high-altitude mailplane, the one and only twin-engine aircraft designed under direction of Prof. Hugo Junkers. In OTL, the prototype was taken to Sweden, where it was militarised and re-designated as K 37. In the Strangers' World, the S.36 was bought by Deutsche Lufthansa and modernized for a long-range Transarctic flight.
