Hi Konstantin,
thank you for your comments, silver/grey Su-2s could be added to the page of 1940 planes. Pity for the scarce images, but I have found a pair of photos of an overall silver Su-2 in 1942, flying aside two camouflaged ones. It's a famous movie, I suppose that you could have already seen it. It shows a silver cowling too, only the foldable panels behind the turret are darker. The persistence of this painting is surprising.
Ivanov M-88 looks cherry red as Yak and I-301 were supposed to be.
Thank you for opening a new topic on post-1941 planes, I'll post something there for sure.
Regards
Massimo

you should add Su-2s made in first 6 months of 1940 to your 1937-1940 page.  IMHO, those planes were light gray overall, same as SB bombers made at the same time.  Only about 30 planes were painted in this scheme - they should be extremely rare!!!

1942 plane is more likely representative for winter camouflage!  Or some field improvisation, I would not mix that with 1937-1940 scheme!

or just "protective green".  Yak and Lagg prototypes were mixed construction/wooden planes and were treated different than all metal Su-2 prototype.
Cheers,
