P-40N White 11 of 2./255 MIAP of the Northern Fleet, on the Vayenga airport. Its uppersurfaces appar not uniform, and it could have medium green blotches on the tail and wings as many planes of the same type in US service.

 

This P-40N of the same unit, white 23, looks very similar to 11 and it has clearly medium green blotches on its tail. As on n.11, the serial number on the tail is cancelled.

Below: a typical P-40N is US service, showing medium green blotches to disrupt the profile of the tail, wings and upper rear fuselage.
