48254 ICM 1/48 U-2/Po-2VS with Soviet Pilots & GP (1943-1945)
In 1942 the factory KB Bakshaeva led work to transform the plane into the bomber, identified as U-2ВС. The number of DER-7 beams for the suspension of bombs under the lower wing was increased from four to six. Since mid-1942, such a bomber armament U-2VS with a total load of 300 kg became standard. In the rear cabin for ease of use onboard machine gun equipped with a folding seat. Instead of a machine gun YES began to establish a machine gun ShKAS with a tape food. Of the more than two thousand aircraft produced during the year, 938 were equipped with a universal pivot unit, 771 of them with a ShKAS machine gun. To ensure night flights introduced a new instrument panel with the air horizon AG-1 or AGP, equipped ANO and landing headlight FZS-155 (air horizon, side lights and headlights on production machines began to install only mid-1943 years). We have carried out significant work to save materials. In particular, wingtips, feathers, and chassis fairings were made of wood and plywood, and engine hoods of sheet iron.
