Ah yes, I have seen this before somewhere...
Possibly a GOT. :wink:
Actualy key thing was diesel engine.As i read some articles,PE-2 and Yer-2 with diesel engines had terible poblem on berlin raid.Some engines just stop to work,and 1 was shoot down by USSR AA gun,second was shooten down by Russian aircrafts,generaly not so flawes faith.Stalin himself ordered developing of diesel engines for airplanes in that time.
You mean Pe-8 or TB-7 as it was known in 1941?
There were no Peshkas in Berlin raids only Il-4 (of VVS KBF) and TB-7 and Er-2 of VVS ADD
I thought that the Pe-8 was the first ever (Soviet) aircraft to bomb Berlin? And IIRC only 5 of 8 made it there due to sinissa's said engine troubles...
First Soviet airplanes to bomb Berlin were DB-3F (Il-4) of Baltic fleet aviation from col. Preobrazhensky's 1. MTAP (mine torpedo aviation regiment) on the night of 8.th of august 1941. This raid was pure navy show. It's still debated how much Stalin realy knew about this raid as navy acted quite independantly (especcialy adm. Kuznyetcov) at the start of the war.
On the night of 9. -10. august 81. AD (Aviation Division) of gen. Vodopyanov went to Berlin on express Stalin order
From translated article Er-2 in Great patriotic war
Just searched for it, and apparently not. However, a number of topics do contain Yer-2 info, so it's on there somewhere :wink:
Sinissa ask give us something to answer!
Oh,really it was Pe-8
Errr,il try,but i really dont know what.....here one easy:
Who and when was firs to use mortars in combat?
Oups,i missed topic.
Air to air mortars? Germany with the WFGR-81 in 1942 (as a guess)...
As i sayed,i missed topic question.
Have you got another question?
Letm me think a bit,il try :grin:
Since nobody answered...which aircraft is shown here on this picture. ^^
hmmpf :-? that was to quick hehe
Did a model of thgis bird few years back. Very distinctive top turret and cockpit glasing.
How about tis one. Famous plane of famous pilot:
It's a piece of cake realy but i put it here becouse i like the bort art.
hmm, I guess it´s a YAK-3, could the pilot be Aleksandr Pokryshkin ?
It's yak but not 3.
Pokrishkin was was not flying Yak's (except for wery short period mid war) and he intensly disliked Yak fighters and Yakovlev personaly(not enough firepower....).
Pilot is/was famous.
