The Junkers JU 87B was a German dive bomber from World War II. This single-engine, low-wing plane was made entirely of metal. The first prototype was made in 1928 and its full production began in 1937. From 1937 until 1944 approximately 6,500 planes were produced. Its characteristic feature were the wings in a configuration of the letter “W”. It was also known for its acoustic sirens ('Jericho trumpets’) turned on during a dive flight to cause panic among enemies. The plane was very modern and was a symbol of Luftwaffe power but it also had a couple of flaws. It was poorly armoured, slow and not very agile. Without the protection of other fighters, it was an easy target for the enemy.
