The '''IL-2M "Avenger"''' is a premium Rank III Soviet attacker with a battle rating of 3.3. It was introduced in Update 1.41.27.
 +
 +
This plane is, as with all IL aircraft, a ground attacker. It should avoid confronting any and all aircraft, as it has terrible maneuverability and even worse energy retention. In an emergency, the hitting power of the 23's is more than enough to obliterate enemy fighters, but the dog-fighting should be left to the fighters.
 +
 +
The IL-2M "Avenger" is a rather distinctive vehicle, as it is the only premium IL-2 in the Soviet tree. A very well armored aircraft, though somewhat unmaneuverable, the Avenger is an excellent variant of the IL series aircraft. This particular version has a rear gunner equipped with a 12.7 mm Berezin UB machine gun, capable of dealing with any enemies attacking from the rear, and the forward firepower is nothing to be trifled with.

Tactically, as with all IL aircraft, the Avenger is best suited to ground-pounding at low altitude. Avoiding conflict with aircraft is a priority, as, though tanky, the plane will not withstand much concentrated fire, especially to its wings. When engaging ground targets, approach at a slight climb before nosing down to begin a shallow dive towards them. Bombing in this way will nearly always allow you to get away from the blast wave, and the 1.5 second delay is more than enough for you to gain enough distance, even from the 250 kg bombs. If using both bombs and rockets, lightening the aircraft from the bombs will allow you to more effectively maneuver to use rockets before returning to base. Use bombs against tanks and pillboxes, rockets against groups of light armored vehicles (and occasionally enemy aircraft), and use your machine guns and cannons for AAA, Artillery, Armored cars, and enemy aircraft.

The IL-2M "Avenger" is a premium Rank III Soviet attacker with a battle rating of 3.3. It was introduced in Update 1.41.27.

This plane is, as with all IL aircraft, a ground attacker. It should avoid confronting any and all aircraft, as it has terrible maneuverability and even worse energy retention. In an emergency, the hitting power of the 23's is more than enough to obliterate enemy fighters, but the dog-fighting should be left to the fighters.

The IL-2M "Avenger" is a rather distinctive vehicle, as it is the only premium IL-2 in the Soviet tree. A very well armored aircraft, though somewhat unmaneuverable, the Avenger is an excellent variant of the IL series aircraft. This particular version has a rear gunner equipped with a 12.7 mm Berezin UB machine gun, capable of dealing with any enemies attacking from the rear, and the forward firepower is nothing to be trifled with.

  • 4 x 132 mm RBS-132 rocket, 4 x 100 kg FAB-100 (forged) bombs (400 kg total)

Defensive armament

Main article: Berezin UB (12.7 mm)

The IL-2M "Avenger" is defended by:

  • 1 x 12.7 mm Berezin UB machine gun, dorsal turret (150 rpg)

Usage in the battles

Tactically, as with all IL aircraft, the Avenger is best suited to ground-pounding at low altitude. Avoiding conflict with aircraft is a priority, as, though tanky, the plane will not withstand much concentrated fire, especially to its wings. When engaging ground targets, approach at a slight climb before nosing down to begin a shallow dive towards them.

Use bombs against tanks and pillboxes, rockets against groups of light armored vehicles (and occasionally enemy aircraft), and use your machine guns and cannons for AAA, Artillery, Armored cars, and enemy aircraft.

Specific enemies worth noting

All enemy fighters have a chance at critically wounding you, and even enemy attackers will, for the most part, out-perform you.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Extraordinarily long WEP time at low altitudes
  • Extremely durable
  • Rear Gunner
  • Stable platform for rocket and strafing runs
  • Faster than the regular IL-2M and IL-37
  • Wide variety of payloads
  • Decent ammo count, even for the cannons
  • Can fly without wingtips

Cons:

  • Slower than the early IL-2s
  • Rear gunner cannot engage targets beneath the plane
  • Unmaneuverable with bombs

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 big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.

Media

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.

Read also

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example,

  • reference to the series of the aircraft;
  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.
