STUKA – 5 Junkers by Warren Zoell

Here are some images of Trumpeter’s 1/32 scale Junkers JU 87 A. Airfix’s 1/24 scale Junkers JU 87 B2. Trumpeter’s 1/32 scale JU 87 R. Hasegawa’s 1/32 scale Junkers JU 87 D, and Trumpeter’s 1/32 scale Junkers JU 87 G2.
Despite its technological obsolescence by early on in the war nothing defines symbolically more the evil that was Nazi Germany than the Stuka. That horrifying scream they made when going into a dive. The ungainly shape of the Stuka caused the screaming noise when in a dive. To create an even louder scream, a siren, powered by a small propeller was place under one of the landing struts ( as seen on the B and D models). It was referred to as the horn of Jerico. Its main purpose was to terrorize.
Apparently the Russians hated this aircraft so much that whenever a Stuka, its pilot and gunner were captured they were immediately executed and the aircraft destroyed.
