Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Smutt responded on the old WaT:
"This is a Do 17, Do 215 or Do 217.

In detail:
(1) On this picture the housing of the engines seem to end in a sharp vertical edge behind the trailing edge of the wings. The Do 17 eninge housings ended at the trailing edge with a round trail.
(2) There is a rotatable gun turret visible on the upper side short behind the cockpit. The Do 17 and Do 215 had a MG 15 in a ball mount.
(3) Uncommon is the long tail section behind the twin rudder unit. In 1937 the RLM (aeronautical ministry) wanted the Do 17 successor to fullfill bombing missions in horizontal and diving flight. Therefore one or more of the Do 217V prototypes (V1 - V9) had a large cross-like speed brake.
. . .
In sum, I think it is the Do-217V Prototype with speed brake"

Indeed a Do 217, not necessarily a prototype



The 215 is very distinct as already pointed out, with very different engine air inlets:



and the Do 17 is an entirely different story, see engine cowlings, tail cone and armament etc...

Thanks again, Rattler.  Smutt's post at the old site contains an image of the speed brake which matches the look of the tail on my postcard image.
Was that speed brake only on prototypes or not?

see the drawing, probably have to scroll a bit to the right (the pics here do not get reized it seems and sometimes are too big), the tail cone was normal and easily detachable for service.

You cannot scroll to the right. That part of the drawing does not display.

Good Hunting.
