Hans Rudel was a German Luftwaffe dive-bomber pilot during World War II. Born in 1916, Rudel entered the Luftwaffe in August 1936 and flew his first combat mission on June 23, 1941, during the German invasion of the Soviet Union. By February 1943 he had flown 1,000 combat sorties and was a German national hero. He became the most highly decorated German serviceman of the war, with an astonishing list of destroyed enemy equipment. In over 2,500 combat missions he destroyed 519 tanks, 800 trucks, 150 artillery pieces, 70 landing craft, the Soviet battleship Marat, two cruisers, and hundreds of bunkers and other defensive positions. He also shot down 11 enemy aircraft while flying a Fw 190. After the war, Rudel moved to Argentina and worked for an aircraft company. He returned to West Germany in 1953 and passed away in 1982.

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 required a fighter escort to operate effectively. Towards the end of the war, the Stuka had been largely replaced by ground-attack versions of the Focke-Wulf Fw 190.
