Any known photos of this aircraft & any other details of this plane would be of help?

Barney, if it's a single colour topsides, it's probably a post-GPW aeroplane.  I don't think many of the three-gun machines were used in the GPW.

Hi,
here is the photo.

I've not other informations on unit and date. Probably it's a postwar repainting in dark grey.

Hi Massimo,

I read somewhere that these afterwar planes were painted green, similiar to Il-10 Huh

Hi Misos, it could be, I can't exclude it. I know that a veteran described La-9/11 'green and blue as prewar I-16s) and there are pieces of a Yak-9 with a green layer over a grey layer, but I think that grey was used in some period after the war.
In my idea, this plane has a red spinner. It looks more glossy than the nose.
Regards
Massimo
