Description

Shturmovik 1 L2 Air frame section  (relic and battle damaged)

This aircraft was a ground attack aircraft produced by the Soviet Union during WW2, otherwise known as the Stormovik, this aircraft was introduced in 1941 and was widely deployed on the Eastern Front and carried weapons good enough to defeat the thick armour of the Tiger and Panther tanks of the German army, hence the use of this aircraft during the Battle of Kursk.

This piece was recovered from the  same aircraft as the seat , which is also on this site and both pieces came from Czechoslovakia.

This piece has a length of 25 in, and a  width of 20 in. This piece comes with some of the original framework with the inner skin attached , with most of the original paintwork.

This is a Relic piece so is in a twisted  condition, but is an good piece from a near forgotten aircraft.

(relic and battle damaged)

The Ilyushin Il-2 Shturmovik (Cyrillic: was a ground-attack aircraft produced by the Soviet Union in large numbers during the Second World War. The Il-2 was never given an official name and ‘shturmovik’ is the generic Russian word meaning ground attack aircraft. The word also appears in Western sources as Stormovik and Sturmovik, neither of which give correct pronunciation in English. With 36,183 units of the Il-2 produced during the war, 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 Soviet Union’s own then-contemporary Polikarpov Po-2 Kukuruznik multipurpose biplane.
