Ju-21 or Ju 21[edit]

Most later Junkers aircraft had no "-" sign between the "Ju" and the number. Is this an exception to the rule or should it really be "Junkers Ju 21"? --MoRsE (talk) 21:42, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

In a pickle - Ju 21 should be H 21 or T 21 as the Ju 21 designation was applied at a later date. article won't re-direct again after my cock-up.Petebutt (talk) 10:13, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Removed the Ju 21 designation (it's not the standard Junkers Ju of later years), but it is the case that Fili built machines were known as Ju 21. Kay mentions this in a piece titled J21 (T21, H21) and Turner and Nowarra label their entry the H21.TSRL (talk) 20:24, 19 June 2010 (UTC) After a bit more thought, my guess is that the Ju of Junkers, pronounced roughly as yu (short U) transliterated to Ю in Cyrilic and came back to English (at least) following the OED as yu and then to Ju. Pre Ju 46, all the refs to a Ju designation that I can find in Kay or Turner & Nowarra involve Russia. So, if this is right, strictly we should refer to the Russian built J 21 as Ю 21, not Ju 21. Junkers notation, with its construction, sales and military letters is confusing enough without a change in alphabet. Kay (p.134) cites the J35/J20/A35/Ju 35 [or maybe Ю 35] as one aircraft described in different ways. We perhaps need a bit at Junkers on the notation.TSRL (talk) 22:13, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

I've added a explanation of the basic nomenclature, based on the two books cited, in the Junkers#Aircraft section. Hope that helps.TSRL (talk) 09:23, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

Why did Fgs redirect here? (I have changed it to FGS). Drutt (talk) 15:21, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
