Tu-2S 836 bap.
Ten Tu-2S aircrafts were built from a money collection of kolkhozniks from the Meschevskij rajon. The request for collection was published in the local newspaper on Feb 15, 1944, subsequently it was collected 4.1 millions rubles (ie. 410 thousands rubles per one Tu-2S). Aircrafts were built in the Zavod №.23 from where they flew to 836 bap on Oct 19, 1944 and were assigned to the third squadron. They participated in the Berlin Operation.

Hi Misos,
I'm happy to see the work proceeding.
To be honest, I think that both inscriptions are oversized on the drawings.

Hi Massimo,
thanx for comment.
So I adjusted photos trying to compensate perspective. Then I superimposed text (separately blue and red) and board numbers (separately 21 and 25) over adjusted photos and adjusted texts and numbers to fit photos as much as possibble. And results are above - texts are a bit smaller, board numbers are a bit larger. I already replaced pictures.

Hi,
here is the profile of Tu-2R from Massimo's Mig3 page:




This Tu-2R was rebuilt in 1943 from an early Tu-2VS, adding large cameras in the bomb bay. It was tested and later flown in combat by 2nd DRAP.
It seems to show a 1942 black-green 'reversed' painting scheme, but its stars are already of the type introduced in late 1943. Strangely, the contrast on the nose sides looks much lower than on the tail.

Here is scheme of the camera installation:


Hovewer, here we can see opening on the bomb bay right door:


Here on the bomb bay left door no small door are visible, although according to the camera on the ground it should be Recon version:


regards,

Hi Misos,
is the plane of the second photo the same one of the first? The camo looks different.
The contrast on the tail is visible on other Tu-2s too. I wonder if it is because of the use of AMT colors on the rudder, that should be less matt than the A-xxm used on metal parts. If so, something similar could be seen on elevators and ailerons too.

Hi Massimo,
thanks for comment.
No, all three photos show different aircrafts. The second and third photos are there only to show the doors on the bomb bay.

Hi Misos,
very good, as usual. I'm not sure about the camouflage, but it's an excellent drawing anyway.  But... shouldn't be a window for the camera on the bombs bay?
