Stuka Siren - How Effective Was It? 





A lot is said about the Ju-87 Siren, the 'Jericho Trumpet'. But what lies behind the story of the Stuka's claim to fame?

    • @Trucknutt23  Agreed. It takes a German to make those 7 and 8 syllable words just flow off the tongue!

    • @Trucknutt23  Yeah, they had all kinds of good ones. I seem to recall from my college German, our professor trying to explain that when something came along requiring a description, English would sort of just create a new word for it....German, on the other hand often created a new word in the form of a brief description. This is why you sometimes get long single words (AKA Compound Nouns) in German that would be either one word or multiple words in English, if that makes any sense. It defi More..

    • @Hunter1114 this word is not part of the normal German language, and I guess even the lawyers who had to use it, worked with an abbreviation. German and English are actually much closer to each other than one might think. Like `'Sturzkampfgeschwader'. 'Sturz' means 'Plunge' and doesn't sound close, but 'Kampf' means 'Combat' and 'Geschwader' means 'Squadron', and if you take the Italian 'Squadra' (troup unit of four), you see it has the same roots, probably from Latin. So just leave out the spa More..

  • I watched a show on Discovery few years back where they interviewed several Mustang and Spitfire pilots from WW2. they said they enjoyed playing with the Ju87's as they were quite easy to shoot down. They likened it to a game,but also felt kinda sorry for them because once they were on the chase-it were game over.

      from a Wiki link:

      Diving procedure[edit]

      Ju 87 diving procedure
      Flying at 4,600 m (15,100 ft), the pilot located his target through a bombsight window in the cockpit floor. The pilot moved the dive lever to the rear, limiting the "throw" of the control column.[25] The dive brakes were activated automatically, the pilot set the trim tabs, retarded his throttle and closed the coolant flaps. The aircraft then rolled 180°, automatically nosing the aircraft into a dive. R More..

  • The siren was just simply cool, like the big unretractable landing gear which made the plane look like an attacking eagle. The Nazis, though crazy m-fer's, had a lot of style.

  • Misunderstood, like the whistle of the P-51, not from the Rolls Royce engine, but from the gun ports in the wings for the 50's.

  • It was an impressive weapon for close troop support during blitzsceg but not fast or manoeuverable. Few made it to the end of the war

  • Is this a video game with a bad (russian) commenter??
    The Stuka was a REAL airplane flown by REAL pilots.
    Do an interview....go to a museum....fly a model.
    I saw a 3/4 scale fully operational(replica).....FLYING Stuka at a WWII days air show in Reading, Pa.
    Yep, they make noise.......so do .50 cal machine guns.

  • Never heard that sound by the JU87 in real life, However, I have been is 90 degree dive's inside small aircraft (Piper180 for one) and as the speed increased there was a distinctive sound similar the what was in the video. IE that classic "Airplane about to crash sound used in movies"
