This book in the popular Polish Wings series tells the story of three famous Russian bombers and trainers in the Polish Air Force during World War II and post-war.
The Tu-2 was a twin-engine Soviet high-speed daylight and front-line bomber aircraft of World War II vintage. The UTB-2 was derivative of the Tu-2, used as a trainer; the elimination of combat equipment meant it was much lighter and this allowed the use of less powerful engines. The Shche-2 was a twin-engined utility aircraft manufactured in the Soviet Union to meet an urgent requirement for a light transport and liaison aircraft during World War II. Illustrated throughout.
