"Excerpt from an intelligence report from the 1st Belorussian Front on the enemy's impression of our aircraft

A captured memo issued by the 9th Army command begins with these words: "Enemy Sturmoviks can appear like lightning in a clear sky. They are exceptionally dangerous if you remain like a passive observer on the road, gazing at the machines exhaling fire. Only one rule exists in relation to ground attack aircraft: get off the road, get to cover." In early April, the 9th Army newspaper also published several slogans giving advice on what to do in case of ground attack aircraft raids. Flyers with this information are also posted in occupied cities."
