The Ilyushin Il-10 Edit
At the start of hostilities on the eastern front during World War II, the Soviet Air Force (VVS) successfully used the ground attack plane Ilyushin Il-2 Shturmovik, which used engines online Mikulin AM-38. With the progress of the war, Soviet authorities began planning her future successor.
The main objective was to increase its speed and maneuverability at low altitude, to allow him to escape from the small-caliber anti-aircraft guns, which was the greatest danger that the ground attack aircraft faced, and was one of the major flaws Il-2. The two most maneuverable and light proposals was the Sukhoi Su-6, developed by Pavel Sukhoi since 1942 Meanwhile, Sergei Ilyushin aircraft developed heavy VSh or Il-8 M-71, derived from the design of the Il-2, which was partly based.
Both projects were powered by the prototype M-71 radial engine, which was never produced in series.
In 1943, Ilyushin began work on a new aircraft, the Il-1, which could be tandem or car, and was a fighter-interceptor armored, specially designed to hunt down enemy bombers and transports. The Il-1 was similar to the design of the Il-2, but was more modern and compact and was powered by the new AM-42 Mikulin. But the Air Force had the idea that armored fighters had a very low speed, and could not act as an interceptor for modern bombers.
As a result, decided to turn the Ilyushin Il-1 in its two-seat version on a ground attack aircraft, changing its designation Il-10 in early 1944 (the odd numbers are reserved for fighters).
(Russian: Ил-10, NATO reporting name: Beast3) was a Soviet attack aircraft developed land at the end of World War II by the Ilyushin OBK. It was also built under license in Czechoslovakia by Avia Avia with the designation B-33.
