About the Il-2 Sturmovik:

The Il-2 Sturmovik was a ground-attack aircraft produced by the Soviet Union in large numbers during WWII. 36,183 units were produced during the war and in combination with its successor, the Ilyushin Il-10, a total of 42,330 were built making it the single most produced military aircraft design in aviation history. It is also considered to be one of the the most produced piloted aircraft in history. The Il-2 is a single-engine, propeller-driven, low-wing monoplane of mixed construction with a crew of two. It was specially designed for assault operations featuring the inclusion of armor in an airframe load-bearing scheme.

In early 1941, the Il-2 was ordered into production at four factories. The first use in action of the Il-2 was with the 4th ShAP over the Berezina River days after the invasion began. The aircraft was so new that the pilots had no training in flight characteristics or tactics, and the ground crew had no training in servicing or re-arming. The training received only enabled the pilots to take-off and land. None of the pilots had fired the armament, let alone learned tactics.

New Release: Great War Instruction Book

420 Webcard

WWI, also known as the Great War or the War to End All Wars, was a global war originating in Europe that lasted from July 28, 1914 to November 11, 1918. More than 70 million military personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilized in one of the largest wars in history. The war drew in all of the world’s economic great powers assembled in two opposing sides: the Allies versus the Central Powers of Germany and Austria-Hungary. The trigger for the war was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, by Yugoslav national Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo on June 28, 1914. WWI ended with the Allied victory and fall of the German, Russian, Ottoman, and Austro-Hungarian empires.

About the WWI German Machine Gun Pill Box:

World War I quickly bogged down into the stalemate of trench warfare all along the Western front during the early months of the war. Each side devised a system of defensive fortifications on their respective sides of the “no-man’s land” in between the opposing sides. The German defensive line, dubbed the “Hindenburg Line” by the Allies, was an extremely effective system of interlocking defense made up of a series of trenches, concrete bunkers, and regularly spaced machine gun pillboxes.

Brickmania has created a model based off one of the more common machine gun pillbox patterns used by the German building battalions. It has a removable roof to access the interior, great-looking camouflage on the exterior, five opening gun ports, and a custom two-man crew for the included prototype BrickArms MG08 Machine Gun. Only a small number of this premium-quality kit will be produced, coinciding with the release of Brickmania’s newest book The Great War: Instructions for WWI models using LEGO® Bricks.

About the M7B1 Priest – 105mm Howitzer Motor Carriage:

The M7 Priest was an American self-propelled artillery vehicle produced during WWII. Witnessing the events of the war, U.S. Army observers realized that they would need a self-propelled artillery vehicle with sufficient firepower to support armored operations. The pilot vehicles used the M3 chassis with an open-topped superstructure, mounting an M1A2 105 mm howitzer, and following trials, adding a machine gun. As the M4 Sherman tank replaced the M3, it was decided to continue production using the M4 chassis. The British had logistical problems with the M7, as it used U.S. ammunition that was not compatible with other British guns and had to be supplied to units.

During the Battle of the Bulge, each U.S. armored division had three battalions of M7s, giving them unparalleled mobile artillery support. To maintain a low silhouette, the howitzer’s elevation had to be restricted to 35°. In British service, some M7s carried a radio set, which required the removal of 24 rounds of ammunition.

  • Weight: 50,640 lb
  • Crew: 5-7
  • Armor: 12-62mm
  • Main armament: 105 mm M1/M2 Howitzer w/ 69 rounds
  • Secondary armament: 1x 0.5 in M2 Browning machine gun w/ 300 rounds
  • Engine: Continental R-975 C1 w/ 400 or 340 hp
  • Suspension: Vertical volute spring
  • Operational range: 120 mi
  • Speed: 24 mph (on road); 15 mph (off road)
