Hi Oleg,
the topic looks interesting. But I don't trust the all-green plane of the profile. To my eye, the wreck could be a light grey plane hand-brushed with green.
It's interesting to see the variety of colors of the marking on the rudder. Emerald green... orange... unsuspected!
I see that they call 4B0 the color that here is known as AII green.

A person who found the plane seems to say that the plane was gray, overpainted with all-green on all sides!

This plane belonged to VVS TOF, had M-103 engines... All other comments are not directly commented to this plane...

Hi, :)
looking at the photos, my idea is always of a grey plane with green brush strokes, a thing compatible with 1941 photos. Of course, I've not seen the wreck with my own eyes...

Thank You FPSolkor for the link.
actually I found the whole thread of interest once I finally got the on-line translator to co-operate.
