The Junkers EF125 was a further development of the Junkers Ju287. Instead of the triple Jumo 004 pod of the Ju287, the EF125 had just a single more powerfull 3500kg Jumo 004-018 engine under each wing. As this engine was not available until the end of the war. The single engine EF125 Design was the final Junkers Ju287 layout. However, as the engine became not available until the end of the war, the EF125 was not realized.

In Russia in 1948 the Junkers EF131 design was equipped with similar Russian engines and designated as Junkers EF140.
