The Mighty IL-2 Ilyshin Sturmovik
April 4 2017
Military history set to WarThunder absolute sim mode gameplay. The IL-2 is such an amazing ground attack craft in game, and it turns out was even more deadly in real life. The IL-2 excelled at punishing the advancing Germans, but was next to useless against entrenched AA. Because of the weight of it's armor IL-2s had to carry relatively minuscule bomb loads, that coupled with the bomb sight being terrible, and that many pilots were only trained in takeoff and landing, made the cluster bombs the preferred weapon. Since the bomblets always struck the top of tanks, they could penetrate even the mighty tiger tank despite there small size. If I turned this into a series, what other aircraft / tanks would you guys like to see? Music: Battle of kings https://machinimasound.com/ Creative commons (attribution) licence.
