The Petlyakov Pe-2 was a Soviet twin-engined dive bomber used during World War II. One of the outstanding tactical attack aircraft of the war, it also proved successful as a heavy fighter, as a night fighter (Pe-3 variant) and as a reconnaissance aircraft. In many respects it resembled the wooden British Havilland Mosquito.
The Soviets manufactured Pe-2s in greater numbers (11,430 built) during the war than any other twin-engined combat aircraft except for the German Junkers Ju 88 and the British Vickers Wellington. The Pe-2 was fast, maneuverable and durable. Several Communist air forces flew the type after the war, when it became known by the NATO reporting name Buck.
