I played Russian GA all the way to Tier X's in the Beta.    I like the IL-8 over the IL-10.  With GA aircraft it's all about hitting power and HP.   The IL-8 has 2 x 45mm cannons compared to the dual 23's for the IL-10.  The better hitting power with guns on the IL-8 will give you more ground target kills and stretch your rockets and bombs further. 

 

The IL-8 has 935 HP, compared to 875 HP for the IL-10.   Yes the IL-10 has advantages in basically all the maneuver categories, but at Tier VII and above, you aren't going to outrun or outmaneuver any other plane or be able to evade effectively a decent fighter or heavy fighter pilot once he's on your six....

not accurate.............. the il8 has 2-45mm with 2-7.62   while the il10 has 4-23mm rapid fire cannons.   the 45mm on the il8 overheat way sooner than the 23mm do...   the advantages are: il8 carries 6 100 pound bombs   the il10 is faster and more maneuverable.

 

i prefer the il10 since it has a better chance to defend itself against enemy planes when you cant rely on your teammates to cover you.

also, the il10 has 900 HP with upgraded airframe

Good correction. Thank you.  I still think the IL-8's two 45mm are far better than the 23mm's on the IL-8.   The DPM is much higher for the 45mm's.  As to the 45mm's overheating faster, it doesn't take too long of a burst to take out targets.  Especially if you are gunning the target on the way in, and then finish it off with a 100 lb bomb.  I like the beefiness of the IL-8.    Here are the raw baseline ratings:

 

                                 IL-8       IL-10

   Firepower             242         189

   HP                        935         874

   Airspeed               377        468

   Maneuver             151        166

 

The airspeed and especially maneuver ratings advantage of the IL-10 are not significant enough in my mind to offset the 30% increase in hitting power and 8% more HP on the IL-8.
