The first jet bomber to enter service with the Soviet air force, the Il-28 tactical day bomber was Russia's equivalent to the British Canberra. First flown on the 08 August 1948, the Il-28 entered service with bomber squadrons in 1950 and remained in production for many years. This jet-powered medium bomber was built in enormous numbers [over 6000 were built by the Soviet Union and China, according to some estimates] and adapted to fulfil a variety of roles.
Here is a conceptual artwork piece of a Czechoslovakian IL-28 landing at an East German Airbase during the Cuban Missile Crisis, 1962. Several of these Soviet IL-28 were shipped in modules and then re-assembled in Cuba. The Warsaw Pact countries went on alert during this time.
