During the campaign of Sicily, mid-summer 1943, British forces of the 8th army fought along the East coast of Sicily against Axis forces. Mid-July, the 5th British division encountered an opposing tank force under commandant Schmalz: the "Schmalz Panzer group". The 5th division was moving from Syracusa, in the South, to the city of Augusta, in the North. It encountered Schmalz's group at Priolo, which operated a defensive action against British forces until they reached Augusta. The next day, he counterattacked them near Augusta, before falling back.
According to Peter Kemp, during those two days of fight, "Stukas" had supported the action of Schmalz. "Stukas" means "dive bomber" in German, but it was mainly used for the Junkers 87. What I am doubting of is that Junkers 87 were quite vulnerable in mid-1943, on the Eastern front and even more on the Western Front against a very important Allied air force. So was it really Junkers 87 "Stuka" which supported Schmalz group, and of which unit, or is "Stuka" in this context a generic term for Close Air Support aircrafts such as the Focke Wulf 190?
