In the summer of 1938, the Soviet state allowed the "enemy of the people" Vladimir Mikhailovich Petljakov to return to the design work at the STO, the Special Technical Department of the NKVD. Under its head, test design offices have been set up to design and develop new types of aircraft. Airframe engineers and engineers who were concentrated in the former KOSOS CAGI building, converted into prison, worked in convictions. Petljakov began working on a heavy-duty fighter jet project under the name VI-100. At that time the command was supposed that the next air war would take place at high altitudes, and the specifications of the new machine: the long-distance escort fighter and the altimeter fighter. The number 100 in the airplane designation was derived from the abbreviation STO, which immediately gave rise to the familiar name of the "One hundred" project. The publication describes the development and deployment of the Petjakov Pe-2, originally a fighter aircraft, which eventually became the most widespread front bomber of the Soviet Air Force. ">The publication complements AERO No. 9, where the service of this aircraft was described in the Czechoslovak Air Force.
The publication is A4, full color on high quality glossy paper, V2 binding, 52 pages, a lot of photos of historical black-and-white photos, colorful side-views.
