Su-6

As attack aircraft Su-6 (especially double with engine M-71F- designation S2A) had fine characteristics of stability and a controllability, was simple and pleasant in a piloting, but airplane has appeared too late, and the engine was not in the production. Therefore Su-6 in a series has not been started up.
