Ilyushin is an aircraft design bureau in Russia that specializes in cargo and transport aircraft. Ilyushin has produced some of Russia's most rugged and reliable transports like the Il-18 Coot, Il-20 Coot-A and the Il-76 Candid. In addition to these cargo aircraft, the Ilyushin Bureau has also designed the Il-28 Beagle bomber, the Il-38 May maritime patrol aircraft, the Il-78 Midas air-refueling aircraft and the A-40 Mainstay airborne early warning aircraft. It should be noted as well, however, that in World War Two, Ilyushin produced the deadly Il-2 Shturmovik, one of the finest Close Air Support fighters of the war.
