    The big sirens on the front of these Stukas was a great example of physiological warfare. The sound of that whirl coming down on you had to be enough to make you wet yourself. The Stuka was a good ground attack aircraft, but imo that siren ups it to a great aircraft. Just as the sound of the MG-42 caused the troops.

    I agree. The Merlin engine was another great sound to come out of the war.
