Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.


Offensive armament

The IL-10 is armed with:

  • 2 x 23 mm VYa-23 cannons, wing-mounted (150 rpg = 300 total)
  • 2 x 7.62 mm ShKAS machine guns, wing-mounted (750 rpg = 1,500 total)

Suspended armament

Main articles: RS-82, RBS-82, RS-132, RBS-132

The IL-10 can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 2 x 50 kg FAB-50 bombs (100 kg total)
  • 2 x 100 kg FAB-100 bombs (200 kg total)
  • 2 x 250 kg FAB-250M43 bombs (500 kg total)
  • 2 x 50 kg FAB-50 bombs + 4 x RS-82 rockets (100 kg total)
  • 2 x 50 kg FAB-50 bombs + 4 x RBS-82 rockets (100 kg total)
  • 2 x 50 kg FAB-50 bombs + 4 x RS-132 rockets (100 kg total)

  • 2 x 100 kg FAB-100 bombs + 4 x RS-82 rockets (200 kg total)
  • 2 x 100 kg FAB-100 bombs + 4 x RBS-82 rockets (200 kg total)
  • 2 x 100 kg FAB-100 bombs + 4 x RS-132 rockets (200 kg total)
  • 2 x 100 kg FAB-100 bombs + 4 x RBS-132 rockets (200 kg total)

Defensive armament

Main article: Berezin UB (12.7 mm)

The IL-10 is defended by:

  • 1 x 12.7 mm Berezin UB machine gun, dorsal turret (300 rpg)

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the aircraft, the features of using aircraft in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons


  • Faster and more agile than the Su-6 (AM-42) that precedes it
  • Retains heavy armour plating


  • Payload options are not impressive
  • Decreased canon ammo
  • Only four rockets can be carried compared to ten for the Su-6 (AM-42)
  • High battle rating


Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

In-game description

The IL-10 Sturmovik was a Soviet WWII-era attack aircraft created by the Ilyushin Design Bureau in 1944. It first saw combat on 16th April 1945. Serial production of the IL-10 was set up at three factories, Numbers 1, 18 and 64 and continued for five years. A total of over 4,600 IL-10s were produced, as well as 280 training IL-10Us. A licensed version of the IL-10 was also produced at the Avia factory in Czechoslovakia from December 1951 until 1955, designated Avia B-33. In 1953 and 1954, Czech-produced variants were also exported to Poland, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. B-33s were armed with four NS-23RM cannon with 150 shells each. A total of 1,200 aircraft were built by Avia.

The heavily armored IL-10 with the AM-42 engine was a perfect embodiment of the Soviet "flying infantry fighting vehicle" concept, whose combat efficiency when providing close air support was increased by "high mobility" over the battlefield, and somewhat improved armament compared to those used on the previous mainstay Soviet ground attack aircraft, the IL-2. The IL-10's top speed at sea level was 540 km/h, 596 km/h at 2,600 m, and roughly 620 km/h at 5,000 meters. This meant that contemporary propeller-driven fighters could only catch up to the IL-10 given initial altitude advantage, or when using engine boost. Also, aerial combat was not easy.


Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
