Summoned from North Africa to reinforce StG.2 in Bulgaria immediately prior to the invasions of Yugoslavia and Greece, L/StG.1 nevertheless found time to apply yellow markings of Operation Marita. This Junkers Ju-87 is unusual in having the entire tail unit painted in yellow (not just the rudder) presumably as a formation leader aircraft. The Gruppe emblem is on the engine cowling as is a depiction of 'Hans Huckebein', a cartoon raven popular in the 19th Century.Crew figures

The Ju 87 Stuka was a German two-seat dive-bomber and ground-attack aircraft of early World War II. First flown on September 17, 1935 the Ju 87 entered limited service with the Luftwaffe in 1937. Although accurate and very effective against ground targets, the Stuka was vulnerable to fighter aircraft. Its poor maneuverability and a lack of speed and defensive armament meant that the Stuka needed heavy fighter escort to operate effectively. An estimated total of 6,500 Ju 87s were built by Junkers between 1936 and August 1944.
