Some interesting photos of Ivan Lakeev and his I-16s surfaced in meantime:



photo probably taken in 1939 during Halhin-Gol conflict or shortly after (?)



Photo taken in August 1940 when Lakeev was a "Krasnaya Pyaterka" leader.  I-16 behind the pilots is red overall!



another photo taken at Tushino in Aug 1940.  I-16 behind the pilots is a mystery, note unusual spinner base



Another mysterious I-16 Type 10 behind the "Kranaya Pyaterka" pilots


the same I-16 Type 10 a bit closer...

Interesting. The spinner is very gloss and is reflecting the cooling windows.
