IL-28 Fighter-Bomber Aircraft

IL-28 Fighter-Bomber Aircraft

When the Soviet Union loaded its ships with ballistic missiles, bound for Cuba, it wasn't just weapons which were transported to the Caribbean island. 

Disassembled tactical bombers - known as the iL-28 Beagle (Ilyushin) - were also aboard those ships.

This plane model was the first jet bomber used by the Soviet Union's air force.
