Many already-seen photos of VVS aircraft, but in high resolution

The title says "French aircraft", but my money's on the Yak-2 or -4 with this one...

Hi,
I agree on the type.
This is very sharp and shows how the lodge for the hood was made. This type seems to have a removable pilot's hood, not sliding, folding or what else.
Only the hood for the gunner is of usual type and can be shown when opened (on other images I mean)

Thanks for the confirmation.
I suppose the cylindrical object above the instrument panel is a head- or chin-rest, made from leather.
I am not sure if the gun-sight installation is complete on this picture, probably "visited" by souvenir hunters.

Regards,
Aleksandar

I don't know. Here there is a point protruding outside the windshield.  Two points are an aiming device by themselves.

Anyway it could be the same plane.
I haven't found photos showing more devices till now, but removing it could have been a way to inabilitate left planes to be combat ready.

Now, there are some interesting SB-s...
Sadly, no description for either of these

Hi a nice page about a German unit of Ju-88s.
There are two good photos of downed Soviet bombers, a SB and an Ar-2.

Now what the hell is going on with this cammo?...
UT-1, I presume, used for target practice by the new management (who then highlighted the best shots wit darker circles)

Hi,
very nice plane.
No, it seems that it was a funny camo and the plane was flown by Germans, then damaged in some landing accident.

Hi,
I've received a scan from Tapani from an unidentified book or magazine.
Who could help to identify the source, plese?

Hi,
Here is a wide gallery  of Soviet planes and wrecks taken by Germans. The link was suggested by JWM. Unfortunately the photos can't be saved or directly linked.
One of the most interesting photos is this Po-2 in colors:

https://fotki.yandex.ru/next/users/jsokoloff/album/211677/view/974920?page=0

The most interesting thing is that the photo is dated summer 1941. This demonstrates that some light brown was occasionally in use for non standard camouflages since then.

here is an interesting la-5f with the number overposed to the star:

A DB-3F with multichromatic camo
https://fotki.yandex.ru/next/users/jsokoloff/album/211677/view/936293?page=0

A lagg-3 with interesting winter camo, perhaps silver:

Details of rockets, perhaps on a Yak-1

Probably silver (metallic alluminium powder) often added to whitewash to get it stronger.
Take a look at Sorokin's MiG : http://ava.org.ru/iap/2gm.htm

Upd: no, it from Western front, not Baltic.
