 Junkers Ju 87 History
With the huge success of the Junkers Ju 87 dive bomber in the early days of World War II (the Battle of Britain did not yet happened at this time), it is no big surprise that the "Stuka" was selected as the primary dive bombers to be used on German aircraft carriers.
The Junkers Ju 87C-1 was an adapted version of the Junkers Ju 87B-1 which was build between 1938 and 1940.
Therefore, the Ju87D was chosen as the new carrier bomber, in the role of the dive bomber and as a torpedo bomber.

 WW2 Warbirds: the Junkers Ju 87 Stuka - Frans Bonné

The result that was based on the Ju 87B, the Ju 87C, had manually folded outer wings, catapult attachments, an arrestor hook, flotation equipment, and a jettisonable landing gear in case the aircraft had to ditch into the sea.
The latter was chosen, and the resulting Ju 87D-5 had extended outer wings, resulting in a wing span of 49 ft 2.5 inch (15,00 m) with an aspect ratio of 6,67 and an area of 362.76 sq ft (33,70 m²).

It kept some of the features of the earlier Ju 87, such as the cranked (gull) wing and two man crew, but added retractable landing gear and a very novel reversible vertical tail.
The main landing gear was housed in a bulge at the junction of the wing where the angle of the wing changed, and retracted to the rear (also rotating 90 degrees to lay flat under the wings).
Although windtunnel models and even a full-sized mock-up was built, the project was canceled due to the fact that the projected performance was not that much of an improvement from the older Ju 87, and also that fighter-bombers such as the Fw 190F series could do the job as well as specialized dive bombers.
