by Robert Taylor
When dressed for war the Stuka was an awesome spectacle. Robert Taylor's outstanding piece depicts a formation of Ju87s bombed up and fitted with long range tanks heading out on a shipping strike over the Mediterranean in 1941. Following its success in the Polish and French 'Blitzkrieg' campaigns, the Stuka was seen by the German High Command as the supreme new weapon to succeed long range artillery. With its banshee-like wailing siren the Stuka pilots would deliver destruction from the skies and create a devastating psychological effect upon all those below.
'Agreed, the Stuka was an extraordinary looking aeroplane, evil-looking perhaps, its cranked wings and spatted undercarriage giving it the appearance of some monstrous bird of prey, but the aircraft had an unmistakable and unique individualism that deserves some further evaluation.'
