The Ilyushin Il-28 was used by the Finnish Air Force for target towing, photo-mapping and sea surveillance in 1960-1981. Although the Il-28 was in 1960 already over ten years old type, it was very suitable for these missions during its serving years in Finland thanks to its qualities and equipment and served reliably all those years.
The Il-28 belonged to the jet bomber generation designed and developed in the late 1940s. To understand Il-28’s background this book also describes the development of jet bombers in the world and in the Soviet Union. The aircraft types which preceded the Il-28 in the Finnish Air Force are also presented. Of these the Il-28 replaced the SAAB 17 and Hunting Percival Pembroke.
