Ju 87 Stuka Flight (GBX120) includes two resin and metal Ju 87 Stuka aircraft, two plastic flight stands, one decal sheet and Unit cards.
Though its design seems somewhat clunky and old fashioned, the Stuka provided a much-needed service to the Luftwaffe and her allies as a ground attack aircraft. Despite the initial perception, the Stuka included some innovative features, such as an automatic pull-up system to ensure that the plane recovered from a dive even if the pilot lost consciousness from the G-forces. The aircraft was easily recognisable by its inverted gull wings and fixed undercarriage. On the leading edges of its main gear legs were mounted the Jericho-Trompete ("Jericho trumpet") wailing sirens, which became the propaganda symbol of German air power and the blitzkrieg victories of 1939–1942.
The Ju86 Stuka (3.7cm) The Stuka Flight can be modelled as either the iconic JU 87 Stuka Dive Bomber Flight or the JU 87 Stuka Tank-Hunter Flight. The dive bomber with its deadly accurate 500kg bombs can take out enemy targets with pinpoint accuracy. The JU 87 Tank-Hunter can fly low under the enemy’s anti-aircraft net and strike tanks in their vulnerable flanks. Both aircraft offer the German player a swift and stylish method with which to surgically knock out high-priority enemy targets.
