Description

This large kit from Airfix of the infamous Junkers Ju87B-2 Stuka is highly detailed and includes markings for the following aircraft:

  • 3./St.G2, St. Malo, France, 1940.
  • 9./St.G.1, St. Omer, France, 1940.
  • 4./St.G2, "Immelmann", Tmimi, Libya, 1940.

The Stuka was the most famous of all planes used by the Germans as a sturzkamfflugzeug (dive bomber). It is instantly recognisable with its inverted gull-wings and fixed-undercarriage. The Ju 87 was ugly, sturdy, accurate, but very vulnerable to enemy fighters. Its accuracy was high when in a full dive that was up to 80 degrees. Once the bomb was released it used an automatic pull-up system to ensure that the plane pulled out of the dive even if the pilot blacked out from the high G forces.
