The Junkers Ju 87 Stuka was a two-seat dive-bomber/ground-attack aircraft. Designed by Hermann Pohlmann, the Stuka first flew in 1935 and made its combat debut in 1936 as part of the Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War. The aircraft was easily recognizable by its inverted gull wings, fixed undercarriage and its "wailing" siren. The Stuka's design included several innovative features, including automatic pull-up dive breaks under both wings to ensure that the plane recovered from its attack dive even if the pilot blacked out from the acceleration. Although sturdy, accurate, and very effective, the Ju 87 was vulnerable to modern fighter aircraft, like all other dive bombers of the war.
