The Henschel Hs 123 was a single-seat biplane dive bomber and close-support attack aircraft flown by the German Luftwaffe during the Spanish Civil War and the early to mid-point of World War II. Although an obsolete design, it continued to see front-line service until 1944, and was only withdrawn due to a lack of serviceable airframes and spare parts.
Henschel Hs 123 in The War That Came EarlyEdit
While assisting some German Paratroopers holding a bridge, Sgt. Ludwig Rothe saw the planes in action. While they didn't look as impressive or as powerful as a Stuka, he knew they were more accurate with their bombs.
