    Above: Germany's first Sturzkampfflugzeug dive bomber. The Henschel Hs 123 which first flew early in 1935. The type saw service in Spain, but was later superseded by the Junkers 87.

    Below: The dreaded Stuka, the Ju 87, which wrought havoc in Poland, Belgium, Holland and France, but became an expensive liability over Britain. Illustrated here is the third prototype Ju 87 which flew late in 1935
