Interesting. Tried to find pics of this plane before but it was like searching for holly grail (everybody know it is supposed to exist but nobody really belives it).
Ex. Yugoslav SM 79 that escaped to SSSR after capitulation of Royal Yugoslav armed forces in april 1941. According to comments it was used in 69.IAP and was crashed during evacuation of Odessa

Camo seems a bit faded standard italian 3 colour mottle that was also used on all Yugoslav "Humpbacks" (SIAI used Verde Mimetico 1, Giallo Mimetico 3 and Marrone Mimetico 3 and for undersurfaces Grigio Mimetico) with soviet hand made repaints of probably dark green of some sorts or thinly apllied black:

Seems that colour profile on Wings Palette site is wrong:


basic camo should be something like this with soviet repainting (this is the one that managed to get to Egypt):

Very interesting! I've always wanted a tri-motor SM.79 for my Eastern Front collection, but I didn't think they were used there (the Italians apparently didn't use them in the Soviet Union, and the Romanian examples had two inline engines - let me know if I'm wrong about other usage of the tri-motor version on the Eastern Front). This might do the trick, if I can figure out how the Soviets repainted it. Not too hard really - probably green for the topside markings and blue for the underside markings. Excellent find, TISO!

Regards,
