Good find!!

The IL2 was built in larger numbers and at a higher rate than any other warplane in History. 36 150 were produced. Source: 101 Great Bombers, Robert Jackson.

Hard to believe that record will ever be broken.

It apparently excelled at Killing Tanks.

Boeing needs to break that record with the 787 to make it profitable. ;)

But was that a bullet hole in that plane, that they left unfixed?
