During World War 2, the Germans Wehrmacht engaged the use of not only their vaunted Panzers but also, the Ju 87 Stuka Dive Bomber immensely. The term “Blitzkrieg” is used to refer to a specific military strategy that the Germans include, which is to use speed and power to obtain a decisive victory. There is much debate over the originality of this military strategy. Eventually, historians agree that the method is not a new one. It is an old method that is engaged with new technology.  During WWII, thickly armored vehicle technology was maturing quickly.

Tanks and planes often help in achieving swift victories. The Stuka dive bomber gained recognition because of its ability to execute ground attacks. It was feared by many and can be easily recognized due to its inverted gull wing design.  As a ground attack aircraft, the plane was highly effective. The new model helped the pilot to execute dives quickly and effectively. The aircraft was able to recover from the dive due to automatic pull-up brakes that were installed underneath both wings. Its greatest strength was its accuracy. In fact, the Ju 87 remained as one of the most accurate ground attack plane throughout the entire WW2. Even though it had some weaknesses, it was applied up to the last days of the war.  The plane was mostly used for precision ground attacks on enemy targets. Its sturdiness and stable speed made the plane ideal for attacking slow ground targets such as assault boats flak cannons, armored convoys and tanks.

However, its greatest strength also became its greatest weakness. These weaknesses were exposed in the sky. Modern fighter planes could easily take this plane out as they could out maneuver and outrun the Ju 87 Stuka. As a result, the Ju 87 rarely proceed on missions without fighter escorts. Without the escorts, the Ju 87 could be easily taken out.  Although the plane was sturdy and reliable, it had poor maneuverability when in the air. In addition, the speed was slow when compared to modern fighter plane. Any enemy aircraft could have intercepted the planes and cause the attacks to fail. But due to its ground accuracy, the Ju 87 planes continued to carry out Blitzkrieg missions. One can only imagine the fear that those on the ground feel when they hear the loud siren of the Ju 87 Stuka planes. The planes made no attempt to conceal themselves. The Germans knew what the airplane were capable of.  Blitzkrieg missions meant that the attacks were carried out with force, speed and precision. Without the awesome fire power of the Junkers Stuka, such attacks would be hard to carry out.Yak 3 Russian Fighter Airplane Red Army Airforce ww2 red
