Another German transport type, the Ju-90, is also well adapted for the transport of troops and supplies, and especially adapted for transport of heavy and bulky articles. However, this type is so valuable that it is rarely risked in forward areas, or on airdromes that the Germans do not firmly control. In March 1942, the Germans by one estimate were not thought to have more than 40 Ju-90's.
