Description

The Polikarpov Po-2 served as a general-purpose Soviet biplane. The reliable, uncomplicated and forgiving aircraft served as a trainer and crop-duster in peacetime as well as a low-cost ground attack, aerial reconnaissance, psychological warfare and liaison aircraft during war, proving to be one of the most versatile light combat types to be built in USSR.

It is the second most produced aircraft, and the most produced biplane, in the history of aviation, with more than 40,000 built between 1928 and 1953. It remained in production for a longer period of time than any other Soviet-era aircraft.

This album of detailed photographs is invaluable for the modeller or enthusiast alike. All photo captions are in English with a Polish summary provided.
