- Customer Reviews
The Peltyakov Pe-2 was one of the best small bomber aircraft of WW2. It was a little bigger than a Mosquito and a little smaller than a Ju88 but roughly comparable in its roles and capabilities. The only twin engine aircraft built in greater numbers were the Wellington and Ju88. The Pe-2 proved to be fast, agile and robust and was used as a level bomber, dive bomber and ground attack aircraft in the main but was also used as a heavy fighter, night fighter and for reconnaissance missions. It proved to be one of the most important aircraft in the Russian Air Force during WW2 and served with great success through the whole war.
