I noticed that the Lisunov Li-2 (derived from the Douglas DC-3) and Ilyushin Il-12 (designed to replace the Li-2) weren't in the game. Could be helpful for players on worlds with early starts wanting to play as an eastern bloc airline. Pretty sure they were both used by Aeroflot in the immediate postwar years. 

 

The citation for the Li-2 specs on Wikipedia is listed as "Aircraft of the Soviet Union : the encyclopaedia of Soviet aircraft since 1917" by Bill Gunston:
