RB-17, skin based on IL-28 Beagle, unknown unit or location early 1950s

 

 

The Ilyushin Il-28 (Russian: ????´??? ??-28 NATO reporting name: Beagle) is a jet bomber of the immediate postwar period that was originally manufactured for the Soviet Air Forces. It was the Soviet Union's first such aircraft to enter large-scale production. It was also licence-built in China as the Harbin H-5. Total production in the USSR was 6,316 aircraft, and over 319 H-5s were built. Only 187 examples of the HJ-5 training variant were manufactured. In the 1990s hundreds remained in service with various air forces over 50 years after the Il-28 first appeared. The only H-5s in service currently are approximately 80 aircraft which operate with the Korean People's Air Force. The Il-28 has the USAF/DoD reporting name "Type 27" and NATO reporting name "Beagle", while the Il-28U trainer variant has the USAF/DoD reporting name "Type 30" and NATO reporting name Mascot.

Nice work ! 

 

Maybe if WG comes to their senses, and drops the .05 patch.... people would play again ...... and enjoy skins like this...

but WG is sitting back watching this game fail like the Willie E Coyote sitting on a manhole cover attached to an anvil trying to fly.....

**poof**
