The Lisunov Li-2 is used to drop the Soviet Union's paratroopers: the Desantniki. With no armament, it is compulsory to support the Li-2 with fighters to engage enemy planes and bombers to strafe ground targets and create a safe landing zone for the Desantniki. It has the exact same stats as the C-47.

History

The Lisunov Li-2 was a licensed production version of the Douglas DC-3. The craft was originally used by Aeroflot as a passenger plane designated: PS-84 - Passazhirskiy Samolyot 84. When war broke out with Germany,  most of the PS-84s were put into military use as the Li-2. All military models were given 7.62 mm ShKAS machine guns and later a 12.7 mm UBK heavy machine gun. They were used for a variety of roles ranging from transport to bomber.
