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.


Suspended armament

The Yer-2 (ACh-30B) (l) can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • 20 x 100 kg FAB-100 (2,000 kg total)
  • 8 x 250 kg FAB-250M43 (2,000 kg total)
  • 4 x 500 kg FAB-500 (2,000 kg total)
  • 3 x 1,000 kg FAB-1000 (3,000 kg total)
  • 3 x 1,000 kg FAB-1000 + 20 x 100 kg FAB-100 (5,000 kg total)
  • 3 x 1,000 kg FAB-1000 + 8 x 250 kg FAB-250M43 (5,000 kg total)
  • 3 x 1,000 kg FAB-1000 + 4 x 500 kg FAB-500 (5,000 kg total)

Defensive armament

The Yer-2 (ACh-30B) (l) is defended by:

  • 1 x 20 mm ShVAK cannon, dorsal turret (200 rpg)
  • 1 x 12.7 mm Berezin UB machine gun, nose turret (195 rpg)
  • 1 x 12.7 mm Berezin UB machine gun, ventral turret (275 rpg)

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles 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

Summarize 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".




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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: and add a link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>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).

In-game description

"The command staff of the Long-Range Air Force (LRAF) proposed adding a second pilot to the Yer-2's crew, placing him next to the commander. This decision significantly reduced the workload imposed on pilots during long flights.

The pilot's cockpit now had two seats, and its appearance was completely changed. The pilots' chairs were located side by side (the commander's to the left and the co-pilot's to the right) under the improved canopy, which was now the classical type instead of the earlier asymmetrical version.

The navigator's station was shifted to the forward section of the fuselage. The elliptical outlines of the forward section common to the Yer-2 were now straightened, and the upper section of the navigator's cockpit was lowered. These improvements only barely influenced the plane's flight characteristics, but they noticeably improved visibility from the pilot's cockpit. The navigator's work with his sextant became easier, thanks to the transparent astrodome.

An OPB-2R sight was mounted instead of the PS-1 sight, resulting in the removal of its external fairing.

Yer-2 bombers with the new two-seat cockpit and the new navigator's cockpit were produced at Factory No. 39 beginning in August 1944. 101 aircraft were built. Production continued into 1945, with the number of planes reaching 241.

Yer-2 bombers built at the factory in Irkutsk entered service beginning in February 1944. Although these aircraft reached the front line when the war with Germany was almost over, they were used actively enough on the Northwestern and Baltic Fronts. Yer-2s made a significant contribution to the successful assault of the fortress city of Königsberg with their large-sized bombs.

Based on their combat experience, the various crews formed a generally favourable attitude towards the Yer-2, built with ACh-30B diesel engines. The pilots liked its comfortable cockpit with excellent visibility, powerful defensive armament, large bomb capacity, and strong airframe structure. The aircraft's high survivability was also noted. Yer-2s with diesel engines practically never caught fire, since kerosene was much more difficult to ignite than petrol.

Yer-2 bombers were withdrawn from service in 1946."


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