Ilyushin IL-32

Transport glider, a high-wing aircraft with a very box-like fuselage. The IL-32 was designed to carry light vehicles. Unusual for such gliders, it was of all-metal construction. A few were built.

This test bomber was the very first in the world to employ a cloaking device for the 10 wing mounted engines making them invisible.
