New avatar: Charley Fox, Spitfire pilot who strafed the infamous Field Marshal Erwin Rommel
does anyone know the name of that one good Russian plane during WWII? all I know is it started with an "I" and ended with some numbers.
Fighter, attack or bomber? The most famous homegrown plane was the Sturmovik ground attack plane. It was known as the "flying tank" and influenced the later design of the American A-10.
fighter. It was developed later on in the war. full metal monoplane
its the Il-2
I think it was. thank you
FYI, the Yak-3 was the premier Soviet fighter of the war.
The Il-2 was the Sturmovik, but it was primarily a ground attack plane.
Nice updated avatar. I don't recognize the type. I thought it was a Delta Dart, but the F-106's wings were lower on the fuselage . . . .
cf-105 arrow. You wouldn't recognize it because it is Canadian. It has a tragic story you google.
Ah, yes, that was the homegrown fighter that got canceled in favor of an arguably lesser American design. The British and Canadian aerospace industry went through a lot of that in the 1960s and 1970s, as they had neither the research capital nor the production volume to keep up with the Americans.
They had the research capital, and 4.9 fighters were already made. It is just that the cost was too much for a newly elected conservative government(Liberals held power up until that time) that thought that the age of aircraft was coming to an end and the age of rockets was dawning. as a result, the new government bought F-101 Voodoos and Bomarc rockets.
also, Canada tried to sell the arrow to the UK and almost got a deal. then the new government came in and scrapped the project
i recognize the cf-105, i study planes
