Hi, Smiley
I am looking for all informations on two-seater P-39, both illustrations and historical data. It would be interesting to know how many planes were converted in Soviet Union from single-seater to trainer.
I have already the images of the books of Geust.
Could anyone help me, please?

I was not able to find much on them in my sources.
there apparently were two versions TP-39F and TP-39Q
some were converted here in the States and some in the Soviet Union.
also I couldn't find any numbers of those shipped to the USSR or how many were converted there.
there are some good drawings here :

Hi DGM,
Thank you. Those drawings are good and distinguish well the 3 known variants.
Do you know if the same photos of Red Stars are on other books too?

the photo at the bottom of page 69 of Red Stars #1(hardcover) is repeated in TBiU #85 , but not at that level of quality.

most of the other stuff I found was on the US versions.
Typi Broni i Uzbrojenia #85 has a chart of technical data that has TP-39F and TP-39Q included.
