Explore our collection of diecast models of the Ilyushin Il-10 - Precision Crafted, Historically Significant, and Collectible Airplane Models.

The Ilyushin Il-10 was a Soviet ground attack aircraft that served prominently during the latter part of World War II and in the post-war era. As the successor to the renowned Il-2 Sturmovik, the Il-10 featured improved aerodynamics, armor, and armament, making it an effective platform for close air support missions.

Introduced in 1944, the Il-10 boasted a powerful armament suite for its size, including cannons and machine guns, and could carry rockets and bombs for various combat roles. Its robust design allowed it to withstand significant damage, a crucial feature for low-altitude operations. The Il-10 saw extensive service in the Soviet Air Force and was also widely exported to other countries, continuing in use into the 1950s and beyond in some regions. The Ilyushin Il-10's significant contributions to ground attack tactics, its operational durability, and its role in the evolution of close air support aircraft make it a subject of great interest for military aviation enthusiasts and model collectors, particularly those interested in WWII and early Cold War military aviation.
