Hi, there is an art on the 22 board: http://ava.org.ru/iap/562.htm
Probably a soldier with the guard sign killing a leopard.

Hi PG_monster, thank for that link!
I played with those photos and yea, that's right! And an arrow (red with black outline?) around the exhaust pipes:


Pitty that the guy sitting on the wing partially covers the picture Sad


Also note that triangular shape behind vertical vent opening behind the arrow Huh

I almost havn't something to add. A veteran of the regiment once said some planes had a bort art as a devil like Kaslin-town cast statuette, other planes as a leopard.
Kalsin metal devil of my childhood:

Hi,
here is a profile of Yak-9 with the prototype of grey-grey camouflage, with which Yakovlev experimented from beginning 1943.
More at http://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/colors/1943-45-fighters/1943-45.html

Hi,
back to Red 22 with soldier fighting leopard - WIP so far:



This is what I was able to identify. Everything else will be pure what-if...

Hi Misos,
I think that the soldier should be on his knees and keep the beast for its throat with the left hand. Else, the position doesn't make sense.

My thoughts on this are both arms of the man are bent at the elbows and are in front of his chest. He has gloves on so you cant see his hands or fists I think the hands are clenched holding a net that is only partially restraining the Panther?  The multiple lines that seem to come from his hands through the space between the Panther look to me to be a net?
Agreed he is on both knees.

Hi,
I've made an effort to find a position that makes sense. I think to see a thing over the head of the hunter, probably his left arm keeping the right rear leg of the panther, this would justify why its basin is so high.
The hunter has to be on his own knees, that are visible. Few doubts on how his legs are.  The right hand of the hunter isn't cleary recognizable, but could pass aside the front arms of the panther with a knife. It certainly won't go in front of its mouth.  There is something that could resemble the hand of the man somewhat above, but it is probably the arm of the panther, it can't be that the painter overposed them, besides this would led to a short arm of the man.




I hope this helps.
Regards
Massimo

That is a very well done interpretation of the artwork.

Hi All,
pretty nice brainstorming about that picture. I appreciate your help.
I tried to make both photos more clear and put them together:

Massimo, I also noticed that dark strip above soldier - his left hand catching panther's leg is an interesting idea.
Regarding soldier - I thought about a different position - left leg on the knee but the right leg moreless straight and more to side, giving soldier more stability. His right arm not straight but his fist in front of his chest, holding something long and sharp - it hits panther to his throat. And panther protecting himself with both front legs holding soldier's right fist.
I will try to paint it. I already had several attempts, but not satisfied with them.
So in the meantime I complete articles about Yaks with wavy camouflage for Massimo's page.
Regards,

Hi Misos,
I think to see two knees in the photo.
The idea of the big blade is likely, it would explain the line to the throat of the panther.
