Drawing by Tapani Tuomanen


This drawing represents the Tomahawk Mk.IIB white 75 of 154 IAP, Leningrad area, in 1942.

The plane was painted in dark green-dark earth camouflage (or its US Dupont equivalent). The British markings were probably repainted with British colors, apart for the band on the fuselage that was often overpainted with Soviet colors.

Note the single rocket rail under each wing and the thin white outline around the red star on the tail.

According to these memoirs, the planes of the unit had white spinners.
