Ju 87 Stuka Flight (GBX120)

Ju 87 Stuka Flight (GBX120) Ju 87 Stuka Flight (GBX120)
includes two resin and metal Ju 87 Stuka aircraft, two plastic flight stands, one decal sheet and one Unit card.

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.

Iron Cross
By the end of 1941, the German blitzkrieg had swept across open plains of the Soviet Union and stopped at the gates of Moscow as winter set in. The halt was only temporary as the Germans were back on the offensive in the summer of 1942. The attack sliced into the southern front, aiming at the oilfields of the Caucasus. Two army groups charged forward, one heading to the mountain country in the south, the other focussed on a small city on the Volga River called Stalingrad. The unstoppable German offensive was pushing Soviet morale to a breaking point as the most pivotal battles on the Eastern Front were about to be fought on the streets of Stalingrad and in the Russian Steppe.

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 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.
