Because of the slow development of new attack aircraft Germany decided to improve what they already had, the Ju-87 Stuka. The new and improved version was much more streamlined with an increase in power, so in 1942 all this gave birth to the Dora (D version) with a 1,400 hp Jumo 211 J or P engine. The new “D” version was going to be the main Stuka. With over 5,000 Stukas built the Dora was the dominant one with more than 1500 D-3s were produced. The early winter camo scheme was used by units equipped with the Stuka G variant. It was a white wash applied over the standard summer paint with no standard pattern used. The Soviet summer offensives was driving the Germans back into Central Ukraine and from August 1943 until October of 1943 II./StG 2 had suffered 8 losses. One of the Stukas, T6+EK was piloted by 21 year old Friedrich “Fritz” Reissner, who was shot down by Anti-Aircraft fire on April 27, 1943 just east of Krimskaja in the Soviet Union.Opening canopy

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 often 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.
