Il-2 Shturmovik Soviet attack aircraft

IL-2 Shturmovik Soviet attack aircraft.

The famous Soviet Il-2 strike aircraft was nicknamed the "flying tank" for its reliable armor, powerful armament, and direct ground troops support in battle. Its mass production began in February 1941, and with the outbreak of World War II, various modifications of this aircraft took action on all fronts. The very first modification of the Il-2 that crushed German troops from the first days of the war was a single-seater. An armored capsule protected the engine and the cockpit, the wing had duralumin sheats, while the tail section of the fuselage was glued from plywood. The strike aircraft had powerful armament consisting of a pair of 20-mm ShVAK cannons installed in the wing and a pair of 7.62-mm ShKAS machine guns. It carried eight launchers with 132-mm or 82-mm rockets under its wing, and up to 600 kg of bombs could be loaded into the bomb bays.
