Stuka Ju-87

The Stuka (or Junkers Ju 87) was a dive-bomber airplane used on Earth, by Germany, during World War II. Their standard equipment included sirens used to frighten the enemy during an attack, and an armament of either 7.92 millimeter machine guns, 20 millimeter cannons, or larger, anti-armor, 37 millimeter cannons.

In 1944, when Enterprise was trapped in an alternate timeline, Vosk dispatched a squadron of Stukas refitted with plasma cannons, one of them carrying the registry "A5 CH", to destroy Enterprise in order to prevent it from in turn destroying the temporal conduit the Na'kuhl were constructing. (ENT: "Storm Front, Part II")

The Stuka was also used in the mirror universe on Earth during that planet's 20th century. (ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly")

"Stuka" was an acronym for "Sturzkampfflugzeug", German for dive-bomber
The "Storm Front" sequence, including the Stukas, was an entirely CGI created effect, done by Fred Pienkos at Eden FX. ("Visual Effects Magic", ENT Season 4 DVD special features)
The Stukas seen in the opening credits of "In a Mirror, Darkly" was footage taken from an actual, contemporary German news, or propaganda reel.
