The German Stuka JU 87 dive bomber was a key part of Germany's blitzkrieg (lightning war) strategy that rolled across Europe at the beginning of WWII. Developed and perfected during the Spanish Civil War, the Stuka was obsolete by the middle of WWII as faster new Allied fighters were introduced. The American Douglas Dauntless and the Stuka were the only mass produced dive bombers of WWII.
