Hi,
a photo of Tu-2. Link from Tora.

What is written on the rudder? A 6?
Regards

Maybe a capital 'E' (russian 'Ye') in cursive?
Looks like the top first type below:

Very interesting, thank you for posting it.
It seems that it was not the same plane, because the photo below seems to show the exhaust plate of a la-5F, and the one above of a FN. Or, if it was the same plane, it was updated in some way.
The most important thing to clarify is if the shape of the protrusion over the cowling and of the intake of the supercharger was that of F or FN.
We have a photo where red appears dark and one where it appears light.
Comparing the photos and assuming that the marks were the same, a possible conclusion is that the rectangle where starlets were painted was red, and the starlets gold, yellow or white, distinguishing between contour only and full.
We see three stripes, likely white, behind a prop blade, and likely behind the other ones too.
The white thing on the steel plate behind the exhausts was likely a sheet of paper.
Regards
Massimo

I've checked comparing the photo with one of La-5FN.  This plane is a La-5F, only the exhaust stacks and plate are from a La-5FN. So it was the same plane of the photo below.
A similar thing was seen on the LaGG-3 of Galchenko: one or two late photos of it show the exhaust pipes of a later version, and it is still unclear if it was the same plane after updates or another one repainted to match the original.
