Contents
Due the Eastern European historiography, that way what also the western publicists followed, Il-2 was perfect and the only one of such kind of construction with the excellent combat qualities. But not one of those statements can agree to reality. Even the widely distributed names of the plane like "The Flying Tank" or "The Black Death", appeared in the other way as the historians stated. The first one was though out by the designer S.V. Ilushin (but not the pilots) even in the beginning of his work on this aircraft. And the second name was created by the Soviet propaganda but not the scared Germans who called it "Zementbomber" (The Cement Bomber) in Luftwaffe or "Elsernen Gustaw" (The Iron Gustav). And the infantry called it "Fleischer" (The Butcher).
