Please can anyone tell me when and how German aircraft were provided to the Spanish Nationalists during Spain's Civil War?

Ju-87 Stukas

Were they flown from Italy or Lybia and if so where in Spain (or Spanish Sahara) did they land?

Were they provided as aid by Germany or ordered and purchased by the Nationalists?

Can anyone detail the numbers and types provided please?

Also when and how did the Soviet Ratas find their way to Republican forces?
