|Kit name||Junkers Ju87-B|
|Dimensions (mm)||L154 x W1|
Although sturdy, accurate, and very effective, the Ju 87 was vulnerable to contemporary fighter aircraft. Its flaws became apparent during the Battle of Britain; poor manoeuvrability, lack of speed and defensive armament meant that the Stuka required a fighter escort to operate effectively.
The Stuka operated with further success after the Battle of Britain, and its potency as a precision ground-attack aircraft became valuable to the German war effort.
