Ilyushin Il-2 Shturmovik History:

The Ilyushin Il-2 is a¬†ground-attack plane¬†that was produced by the¬†Soviet Union¬†in large numbers during the¬†Second World War. The word¬†shturmov√≠k¬†(Cyrillic: —ą—ā—É—Ä–ľ–ĺ–≤–ł–ļ), the generic Russian term for a ground-attack aircraft, became a¬†synecdoche¬†for the Il-2 in English sources, where it is commonly rendered¬†Shturmovik,¬†Stormovik¬†and¬†Sturmovik.

To Il-2 pilots, the aircraft was known by the¬†diminutive¬†“Ilyusha”. To the soldiers on the ground, it was called the “Hunchback”, the “Flying Tank” or the “Flying Infantryman”. Its postwar¬†NATO reporting name¬†was¬†Bark.

During the war, 36,183 units of the Il-2 were produced, and 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 aviation history, as well as one of the most produced piloted aircraft in history along with the American postwar civilian Cessna 172 and the German then-contemporary Messerschmitt Bf 109.

The Il-2 played a crucial role on the¬†Eastern Front. When factories fell behind on deliveries,¬†Joseph Stalin¬†told the factory managers that the Il-2s were “as essential to the¬†Red Army¬†as air and bread.”
