Welcome to Warbird Wednesday! Today, we’re visiting the grandfather of all ground attack aircraft, the IL-2 Sturmovik. This aircraft played a crucial part in the Eastern Front during WWII and Stalin has been quoted that the IL-2’s were as essential to the Red Army as bread. Known with many nickname including the hunchback, Bark, and the Black Death, the Sturmovik is the single most produced piloted aircraft in history and was flown by female pilots.
