The Stuka, in Italian service, was called the Picchiatello, meaning 'crackpot'. Whether that refers to how crazy you have to be to turn into a ninety-degree dive and rain bombs on your target is up for interpretation. The early war years saw Italian pilots flying the Ju 87 to significant success, but the ability of the dive bomber to sow terror and havoc was curtailed, in comparison with the German use, due to low numbers deployed. Nevertheless, the "Picchiatello" and its bombs made quite the mark.
