Hello to all :D; more.......................................

Sturzflugbremsen (Dive brakes).

If we look at the accuracy of a Stuka, we can see, even without any additional justification, that the target can be detected and hit best when a bomb is dropped from the lowest possible height (Fig. 3 and 4). Therefore, keeping the dive speed low is essential to the dive bomber's success.
