Photo Comment

The Il-10 attack aircraft saw action in the closing stages of World War II and in Korea. The improved Il-10M did not appear until around 1950. This particular aircraft tested an auxiliary rocket engine in its tail to improve performance, but this was not proceeded with and the Il-10M was used only for training purposes.
