Hi,
I've uploaded a page on the I-15bis at http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/i15/i15bis/i15bisevolution/i-152evolution.htm
Please, have a look and let me know your suggestions.
Regards

Great!
I didn't know the pic of the white I-15bis, and the "white 68" with if very strange camouflage. If I did an another I-15 (not yet) I will do one of those two...

Massimo,
Where did you get mid-1937 as the beginning of the production???

Maslov says that several tens were produced in 1937 (in several documents 100 planes are mentiones as "in the process of production", while the plan for 1937 was 270 planes), all those planes were counted as 1938 production.  Not likely that any of those reached VVS units during the winter 1937/1938.

It is possible that first "bises" were sent to China.  Spain received its I-152bis fighters only in late 1938!

Hi Xan, hi Konstantin

Red Stars volume 6 of Gordon and Dexter, p.62.

Units of the VVS began to receive the I-16bis in mid-1937 even before State Acceptance Trials has been passed...
...four volunteers squadrons were dispatched in November 1937 to the Nanchang area to support the Chinese....

Hi Massimo

I think I am like many "lurkers" here who don't participate directly very often but read just about everything on the forums and your website. I find the "evolution and painting" pages a fantastic resource and a great starting point for the interesting follow-up discussions (often between yourself and Konstantin). You are the total opposite of that "other" researcher in that you seem entirely open for debate, which in the end lead to much more and better quality information coming out. I also like how you keep reviewing the colours in your tables. Keep it up!

Hi,

do you see the thing under the wingroot? I suppose that it is some sort of camera gun.  Has anyone seen such a device on other photos?

Hi all,
I have to repost this again: the page with profiles of I-15bis was uploaded at
http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/i15/i15bis/tapani/tapani.htm

There is still some corrections and additions to make, but I think that it's nice.

Hi,
I have to make a correction: plane 3 is of 70 iap, camouflaged planes are of 56 iap. Thanks to Vlad for the links with improved photos.

Hi,
one more profile of Tapani was uploaded at
http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/i15/i15bis/tapani/barbarossa/silvergrey.htm
It's a silver-grey plane 'red K'.

1)V.F. Abramov didn't flew I-15bis
2)Не didn't served in 11 iap vmf

So most probably the unit is 71 iap vmf
