The Il-2 was a Russian ground attack aircraft that was built in huge numbers by the Russians to support its troops during the war. When the productions numbers are combined with its successor the Il-10 it is the most produced military aircraft of all time with over 36,000 examples made. The original Il-2 was a single seat heavily armored plane which the pilots found to be underpowered and very vulnerable to attack by enemy fighters despite its heavy armor. This resulted in it being redesigned to accommodate a gunner for self-defense (although early on the gunner did not have the same armor protection as the pilot). This became the Il-2M which was hastily put together and was later again redesigned to give the Il-2M3 which was the definitive version of the family which continued in service from its introduction in 1942 until the end of the war in 1945.
