Ju87B1 - St.G77, Stab II , S2+AC, Major Alfons Orthofer, Breslau, Germany 1939 (1:72) by Corgi Diecast Aviation
Item Number: AA32515
Stuka Ju87B-1, S2+AC was piloted by Major Alfons Orthofer of Sturzkampfgeschwader 77. It was specially decorated with the rather menacing shark'�s mouth for an article in '�Signal'� magazine whilst based at Breslau Germany in 1939.
St.G77 saw action in both Western Blitzkreig operations (Poland and France/Low Countries). Possibly its most notable sortie was against Fort Fl'�malle on May 13th 1940.
St.G77 was actually one of the first units ordered into enemy territory and landed at Bierset airfield whilst it was still being bombarded by Fort Fl'�malle. The Gruppenkommandeur very quickly led an attack that silenced the fort and demonstrated the pinpoint accuracy and destructive power that could be achieved by the Stukas.
The Stukawaffe flew a total of 300 sorties against French positions that day, with St.G77 alone flying 201 individual missions.
