Description

Towards the end of WWII, multiple captured German prototype jet bombers found their way into Soviet hands, and were quickly analysed and reverse-engineered. One of the first successful production jet bombers to incorporate the technologies learned from these planes was the new IL-28 bomber, which would go on to become one of the staples of air forces of the Eastern Bloc during the '50s and '60s. One such operator was the Hungarian Air Force, who acquired the type in the late '50s and kept using it until it was eventually replaced by the Su-22M3 in the frontline bomber/strike role.

Introduced in Update "Alpha Strike", the Hungarian IL-28 is completely identical to its Soviet brother, and as such it should be played the same. The aircraft fills the role of the "fast frontline bomber" previously taken by aircraft such as the Tu-2S found in the same tech tree, focusing on interdicting the enemy airspace quickly, striking a single target precisely, and leaving before the fighters can scramble. In-game, it finds itself at an advantage when doing this at its battle rating, due to its generous airspawn and powerful tail gunners. All in all, the IL-28 teaches players of the Italian tech tree the playstyle of high speed interdiction and strike bombing, preparing them for future aircraft in this line such as the following Su-22M3.

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

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

History

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) 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).
