Title: TB-3 bomber photo

This one is interesting, even if you don't see too much of the whole aircraft!? ?:-[? I thought the tail painting was interesting, though I must confess that I don't have anything in my library on this aircraft.

Nice image.  :)I like this plane very much.
By the way, I see that on nearly all images of TB-3 on Barbarossa Victims the undersurfaced are painted with an unusual dark color, sust a bit lighter than the dark green. On the cover of a book of Andersson, the undersurfaces are represented with a dark blue-grey, but I don't know this color between those used by VVS. ???
Who knows what color could it be?
