Hi Rodney,
I took in consideration this photo to make a profile some months ago, unfortunately I can't see the bort numbers and not even their position, so I renounced.
The white band on the wings is a regimental mark, I don't remember well of what unit. If you want, I can ask again to Timoshenko.
Regards
Massimo

Hi,
here is another photo and the related text from http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/il-2/il2-camo/il-2m3/il2m3-camo.htm



Quote
Image of planes of 655 ShAP / 136 Gv.ShAP . The most important characteristics are the wide white bands around both wings, typical of this unit; the planes show often a white tip of the spinner too.
Another plane of this unit is known to have a light spinner with two dark thin lines on it.
These planes of these photos looks built in Z.18 because of the flushed gun fairing and light rudder.
Below, pilot Ya.A. Korovin (left) and his gunner in front of the line.
Thanks to V. Timoshenko for his help.

The plane of the other photo is from the same unit, but is built in Z.1 instead of Z.18.

Looking at the blurried photo of the spinner of n.5, I can't fully exclude that it was painted in the same way of the other plane.

Regards
Massimo

Hi Rodney,
very good images. Your friend has done a fine work. Maybe one could refine the screeenshots with Photoshop to delete some angles and to make them more similar to photos.

Very nice screenshots! Looks like the old "Il-2 Sturmovik" (should be "Shturmovik"!) Game. Your friend did an excellent job on the scheme.

Regards,

Jason
