| Chuck’s Guides | IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad Guides |

The idea for a Soviet armored ground-attack aircraft dates to the early 1930s, when Dmitry Pavlovich Grigorovich designed TSh-1 and TSh-2 armored biplanes. However, Soviet engines at the time lacked the power needed to provide the heavy aircraft with good performance. In 1938, the Il-2 was designed by Sergey Ilyushin and his team at the Central Design Bureau.
