    Air power played a vital role at Kursk, with both side employing very large numbers of aircraft. The Petlyakov Pe-2, a very versatile Soviet dive-bomber, was one of the main types employed for attacks on supply lines.
    The ability of the Red Air Force to range far and wide in the rear of the German front line was to cause Ninth Army problems throughout the battle.
