Single-seat Il-2 recovered from Murmansk lake

Recommended Posts

It's interesting that it also features metal wings, iirc there was one factory that still produced metal wing IL-2s even though the others switched to wooden wings in the mid war.

Amazing thing is that this plane went down in mid-1943, long after single-seater production ended. 

 

Perhaps the units operating in Murmansk would have been given low priority for receiving the new models, compared to their counterparts in the Kuban and Rzhev?
