X-Plane 10 Ilyushin Il-40P 1953. The Ilyushin Il-40 (NATO name: Brawny) was a two-seat Soviet jet-engined armored ground-attack aircraft. The first prototype flew in 1953 and was very successful except when it fired its guns, as their combustion gasses disturbed the airflow into the engines and caused them to flameout or hiccup. Remedying this problem took over a year and involved the radical change of moving the engine air intakes all the way to the very front of the aircraft and repositioning the guns from the tip of the nose to the bottom of the fuselage, just behind the nose wheel. Comprehensive documentation included. This a recreation and as such has an all modern instrument panel. By Billy Bargagliotti.
