Krasnozvёzdnye Americans Stalin.

V. Kotelnikov


The new book describes in detail the exploits of the A-20, which distinguished itself on all fronts of the Great Patriotic War. This took place on July 16, 1944 in the Finnish port of Kotka. While our bombers are trying to distract the enemy's anti-aircraft detachments, a couple of meters above the water, high-speed twin-engine aircraft are approaching the enemy, each of which has a bomb weighing 1000 kilograms. After the bombs were dropped, they recoiled and struck on board the German cruiser Niobe, which was the largest warship sunk during the Great Patriotic War. But it is worth noting that the bombers that sunk it flew American-made fighters, better known as Boston.

This plane was created as a heavy attack aircraft, used by the forces of the Air Force of England, France, and the USA during the Second World War. But most of the cars were in the USSR. But we also had plenty of stormtroopers, moreover, in terms of booking they were not in any comparison with the Americans. And so the A-20 were primarily used as short-range bombers and heavy fighters. And the A-20 proved to be extremely effective, deserving the favorable reviews of many servicemen.
