Simple question.

What's your favorite Soviet aircraft from WWII (and no, lend=lease from the UK or USA don't count – must be a Russian made plane)?

How can there be any other answer than the IL-2? "They are as essential to the Red Army as air and bread" -- Josef Stalin.

You mean there is a Soviet airplane in WW2 besides the Ilyushin Il-2 Sturmovik?
