In the second half of the Great Patriotic War the Soviet aviation had total air superiority. IL-2 aircraft one after another delivered attacks over the fainting enemy. Throughout the war attack aircraft obtained such fame and confidence, that they turned into a symbol of that war.
Rough and powerful – are the two words truly characterizing IL-2. It was an unpretentious aircraft capable of doing its job in a winter frost, summer heat or a brake-up season. Infantry loved it. Soldiers exuberated when it was appearing in the sky rushing toward the enemy. IL-2 by right was deemed the best attack aircraft of the Second World War.
