its a special gunsight for diving attacks
stuvi = sturz(kampf) visier = dive(bombing) sight

It's a dive bombing sight similer to the CCIP pippers on modern jet fighters. Was accurate within 10-20m if my memory is correct.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.</center>

the advantage is you can shoot down enemy stuka's even more easily because their pilots will sit there figuring out how to use the stuvi... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

in RL its advantage was its more accurate and makes the job easier to novice pilots.

a big disadvantage is you can not aim with your MG's properly anymore.
