    The Russian Ilyushin Il-2 Sturmovik is the single most produced combat aircraft in aviation history with over 36,000 aircraft produced. It was often referred to as the “Flying Tank” because it was heavily armored and incredibly hard to shoot down. It was used mainly for ground support and served well as a tank-buster.
