Hi, I would find documents on an Il-2 captured by Hungarians.
I've found a profile here
http://wp.scn.ru/ru/ww2/a/264/13/0/1
and a photo on the Squadron monograph that is unclear because of the foliage camouflaging it, but it seems a singleseater converted into twoseater.
Does anyone know if there are other photos or documents on this plane?
Regards
Massimo

Thank you, Barney!  That's the one Massimo and I have.  I do notice something new, though - this appears to have the reinforcing struts on the rear fuselage.  I hadn't noticed that before.  Interestinger and interestinger.

Hi Barney, hi Jason,
however it's a bit cleaner than my scan. Thak you for sharing it. Now I think it's not a converted twoseater, but an usual singleseater with the rear panel removed and vegetation to make some confusion. A part of the wire aerial is visible in front of the tail, and so the vertical thing is necessarily the radio mast. I wonder if the repainting was completed so, with only partial markings and camo, or it was later completed with full Hungarian tri-color tail and axis yellow bands to prevent friendly fire, that looks more likely.
Regards
Massimo

Hi,
I've received a photo of the just captured plane and I've added it to the page:https://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/il-2/il2-camo/germans/germans.html

Dear Massimo,
   Thank you for sharing such an interesting photo.
   It is wonderful, but new unknown wartime photos continue to appear.
Cheers
