It was introduced into service just before the war started, combining high-angle and direct-fire, relatively high rates of fire, and a reasonably lethal shell in a highly mobile piece. It remained the British Army
British Army
's primary artillery field piece well into the 1960s, with smaller numbers serving in training units until the 1980s.

Junkers Ju 87
The JUNKERS JU 87 or STUKA (from _STUrzKAmpfflugzeug_, "dive bomber ") was a German dive bomber and ground-attack aircraft . Designed by Hermann Pohlmann , it first flew in 1935. The Ju 87 made its combat debut in 1937 with the Luftwaffe 's Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War and served the Axis forces in World War II . The aircraft was easily recognisable by its inverted gull wings and fixed spatted undercarriage . Upon the leading edges of its faired main gear legs were mounted the _Jericho-Trompete_ ("Jericho trumpet") wailing sirens , becoming the propaganda symbol of German air power and the _blitzkrieg _ victories of 1939–1942. The Stuka's design included several innovative features, including automatic pull-up dive brakes under both wings to ensure that the aircraft recovered from its attack dive even if the pilot blacked out from the high g-forces . The Stuka operated with considerable success in close air support and anti-shipping at the outbreak of World War II. It spearheaded the air assaults in the invasion of Poland in September 1939. Stukas were crucial in the rapid conquest of Norway , the Netherlands , Belgium and France in 1940. Although sturdy, accurate, and very effective against ground targets, the Stuka was vulnerable to modern fighter aircraft, like many other dive bombers of the war

German Instrument Of Surrender
The GERMAN INSTRUMENT OF SURRENDER ended World War II in Europe .
