Hi,
here is link to source of VVS pictures waralbum.ru and specifically to nicely decorated Il-2 http://waralbum.ru/48479/. All 3 pictures are from that link at waralbum.ru.







I am not able to distinguish exact version  Sad

HI

I have seen these photos before, in one of the Red Stars books I think.  But, what I just noticed is a round opening next to the 'S' in the Suvorov writing, in the top photo it looks open, in the next it has a cover.
Not noticed this before, and I don't have time to search right now, but looks like a camera port? 

I'm sure Jason will be along shortly....

cheers

Hi,
here is what I have on this plane,
http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/il-2/il2-camo/il-2m/aleksukhin/aleksukhin.html
The version is quickly identified: twoseater with straight wing of Z.18, first half of 1943, well recognizable for the thin white outline on the stars and the black amoeba on the tail.
The hatch... I don't know if it's for a camera, for fuel or compressed air. Anyway it is common.
Regards
Massimo
