"Stuka Streife"

48thMaintenance Art


   "Stuka Steife" (translation- Stuka Patrol), features three Ju87B's on a reconissance mission looking for allied movement over northern France.

  The Ju87 dive bomber became one of the most feared Luftwaffe aircraft of World War II. The fear was partly psychological-the scream of the plane's racing engine merged with the whistle of falling bombs to produce a terrifying howl, an effect deliberatly accentuated when sirens were fitted to the bomber. Such was the Ju87's that it earned a nickname-a contraction of Sturzkampfflugzueg, which meant  all dive bombers. The abbreviated version. . . "Stuka" .
