Ju-87B2 StG1 1 by WS-Clave Ju-87B2 StG1 1 by WS-Clave
The Ju-87 Stuka was a purpose-built dive-bomber which entered Luftwaffe service in 1935. Over 6,500 Stukas were built, and they were highly accurate and successful when there was no fighter opposition present.

It had many unique design features including an automatic system for dive recovery, so that if the pilot blacked out during pull-up, the Ju-87 would level itself without intervention from the pilot.

The standard armament was 1 x 250Kg bomb and 2 x 50Kg bombs, with 2 x 7.92mm machine guns in the wings and one for defence in the rear cockpit.

This example is a Ju-87 B2 of StabII/StG1, Luftwaffe circa 1941.

Christmas edition, instead of horrible siren it has gingle bells. It must have been very hard to keep them that white, especially around the exhaustion sistem...

Yeah, it's probably a bit too white, but it was only temporary and they washed it off in summer...

And lol @ Jingle Bells :D

The winter camo looks the best on this plane, methinks.
