The photo shows La-5s of 193 IAP, 302 IAD in July 1943 in the Kursk area.

The first plane is particularly interesting for having the F logo on the cowling, meaning that its engine was a M-82F, and for the white paintings on its propeller and spinner; unfortunately the bort number is not visible.




Close-up of the third plane of the row.

Although being far and blurried, it shows the numbe 15 and the white oblique cap that was characteristic of the unit.

Another plane of 193 IAP. Again we see an oblique white cap and a white spinner (with black rear disk). It could even be the same plane of the photo above, or at least very similar.

Not all images report the source. This is not to deny any credits, but because many of them were collected from many persons that no longer remember where they found them. In some cases, many of these images can be found on multiple sources.

Should this be unacceptable for anyone having rights on the photos, we apologize and we eventually provide to remove or credit them.
