Soviet counterparts!

One the best airplanes (maybe the best!) of the soviet tactical air support during WW2 was the Ilyushin IL-2.

It was a ground attack aircraft (Shturmovik), produced by the Soviet Union in very large numbers.

In combination with its successor, the Ilyushin Il-10, a total of 42,330 were built, making it the single most produced military aircraft design in all of aviation history. (Source: Wikipedia)

It was a prominent aircraft for tank killing with its accuracy in dive bombing and its 37mm guns penetrating their thin back armor.

That means, there must be a IL-2 - model!

The box contents 12 parts with info-card of the unit!
