Speaking of the Stuka. I saw a Wings or Discovery channel program on attack aircraft the other night and it said that the Stuka could not exceed 250Mph even in a vertical dive because of the aerodynamics involved. The host made a particular point of it and was quite emphatic. Dive a Stuka in FB and see what you get. Smell something in the FM there?

He was wrong. Stukas reached 650kmh before pull-out of dive.
