"Copied to the last bolt"
The Lisunov LI-2 (NATO reporting name: "cab") is used to drop the Soviet Union's Paratroopers: the Desantniki. With no armament, it is compulsory to support the LI-2 with fighters to engage enemy planes and bombers to strafe ground targets and create a safe landing zone for the Desantniki. It has the exact same stats as the C-47.
The Lisunov Li-2 was a licensed production version of the Douglas DC-3. The craft was originally used by Aeroflot as a passenger plane designated: PS-84 - Passazhirskiy Samolyot 84. When war broke out with Germany, most of the PS-84s were put into military use as the Li-2. All military models were given 7.62 mm ShKAS machine guns and later a 12.7 mm UBK heavy machine gun. They were used for a variety of roles ranging from transport to bomber.
- The plane portrait is the same as the British C47.
