Junkers Ju 87B-2 Stuka

Stuka was one of the famous german warplanes in WWII.

As an efficient dive-bomber it was one of the most important planes in the beginning of the war, when german tanks and troops advances in the "blitzkrieg". During the war it's importance was diminished as it was slow and vulnerable, although in some parts of the war-zones it still played important role.
