9781625450425: IL-2 Shturmovik: Red Avenger
Présentation de l'éditeur :

The Ilyushin Il-2 Shturmovik armoured attack aircraft became an icon of Soviet resistance on the Eastern Front in the Second World War. Known throughout the Wehrmacht as the Fleischer ( Butcher ), the Il-2 took a terrible toll on German infantry and armoured vehicles including tanks and assault guns and when equipped with a rear gunner, German bombers and even the occasional fighter were among its victims. However, the cost was also great; during the early stages of the war, Il-2 pilots were not expected to survive more than an average of five or six sorties. The Il-2 Shturmovik was designed as a low-level close-support aircraft capable of penetrating enemy armour and destroying ground targets. Dubbed the Flying Tank by Soviet air crews, it was engineered to withstand tremendous punishment and still drop its payload and return to base; Luftwaffe pilots were often amazed to see 20-mm cannon shells bouncing off its armoured plates. At its peak, production of the Il-2 reached 900 aircraft per month, and by the end of the war over 36,000 had been built. It became a renowned symbol of Soviet resilience and was undoubtedly the most important aircraft of the Red Air Force in the Second World War. Il-2 Shturmovik: Red Avenger is the first comprehensive reference work on the Il-2 to be written by a native English speaker. It combines minute detail on the aircraft s design and technical development with a thrilling account of its service history on the Eastern Front and in other theatres, enhanced by the fascinating testimonies of former pilots. Uniquely illustrated with over 200 images many previously unpublished and 50 stunningly accurate colour profiles, this book is essential reading for Second World War historians, aviation enthusiasts, and modellers alike.

Biographie de l'auteur :

Jason Nicholas Moore is an avid air historian and modeller and has spent forty years conducting historical research and constructing model aeroplanes. Moore is currently finishing a comprehensive guide on modelling the Il-2 Shturmovik and during the course of this project, he has amassed a vast quantity of reference material on the IL-2, including relics of this aeroplane.

Description du livre Fonthill Media LLc, United States, 2015. Hardback. État : New. 210 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Ilyushin Il-2 Shturmovik became the aerial representative of the Soviet response to the German invasion on the Eastern Front during the Second World War. The Il-2 was designed as a low-level close-support aircraft capable of defeating enemy armour and other ground targets. Hardly a fighter, the Il-2 was exclusively engineered to take an enormous amount of punishment and still keep the pilot, rear gunner and critical mechanical components unharmed. In the end, the Il-2 would become the most important aircraft to the Soviet Union in the defence of the homeland against advancing hordes of panzers. At its height, production of the Il-2 hit a peak of 300 aircraft per month and variants boasted potent 23-mm cannon, 200 anti-tank bomblets and 4 x 132-mm rockets. The Il-2 became a highly respected and highly feared adversary. Soviet air crews dubbed the Il-2 as the Flying Tank for its incredible ability to withstand a tremendous amount of damage and still release its payload only to return home intact. Not only did its rear gunners shoot down Luftwaffe aces thanks to its 12.7-mm machine gun, the Il-2 was also used as a fighter and German pilots were amazed to see 20-mm cannon shells bouncing off its armour plates. Crews were also known to weld additional armour to their Il-2s. The Shturmovik proved so effective that many Soviet crews were recipients of the Gold Star of Hero of the Soviet Union. Even today, the Il-2 is regarded as the Russian equivalent of the Spitfire. By the war s end, some 36,000 Il-2s were produced and became the symbol of the Eastern Front.
