The new book details the feats of A-20, distinguished on all fronts of the Great Patriotic War. This happened 16 July 1944 year on the territory of the Finnish port of Kotka. While our bombers are trying to distract enemy anti-aircraft detachments, a pair of meters above the water directly to the enemy are approaching high-speed twin-engine aircraft, each of which has a bomb weighing 1000 kilogram. After the bombs were dropped, they retorted and struck the German cruiser Niobe, which was the largest warship sank during the Great Patriotic War. But it is worth noting that the bombers that sank it flew on American-made fighters, better known as Boston.

This plane was created as a heavy attack aircraft, the Air Force used the forces of Britain, France, the United States during the Second World War. But most of the cars was in the USSR. But we had plenty of attack aircraft, moreover, booking they may include any comparison with the US. And so A-20 mainly used as a short-range bombers and heavy fighters. And A-20 appeared extremely highly effective, earning the accolades of many soldiers.
