Includes free decals and masking foil A comprehensive reference for the modeler or enthusiast alike The Junkers Ju 87 or Stuka (from Sturzkampfflugzeug, "dive bomber") was a two-seat (pilot and rear gunner) German ground-attack aircraft. Designed by Hermann Pohlmann, the Stuka first flew in 1935 and made its combat debut in 1936 as part of the Luftwaffe's Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War. The D-series saw extensive use in the Eastern Front and the Middle East. With the G variant the aging airframe of the Ju 87 found new life as an anti-tank aircraft. This was the final operational A-T version of the Stuka and was deployed on the Eastern Front. The change in German military fortunes after 1943 and the appearance of huge numbers of well armored Soviet tanks caused Junkers to adapt the existing design to combat this new threat. This is a detailed technical guide to these formidable variants, and provides exceptional reference for any modeler or enthusiast.
