Hi,
good photos. Is the first plane of the same unit of other ones?
The camouflage is very clear on the rear fuselage and wings because it was made by brush. On the fuselage metallic panels, it was blurried because sprayed. I wonder if the side panels are from another plane.
Note 02 with one dark green.

Plane 12 seems to have a dark wing uppersurface.  I suspect that it could have silver painted sides and green or green-black upper surface. The rationale could be that silver should mirror the ground if seen from above, and the sky if seen from below. This is only a conjecture of course.

There seems to be a problem with the forum, preventing me from posting.
I have reported it HERE.

The article headline says just 'Guards Air Regiment. The warpath', without mentioning which one (or ones).

Great photo. I wonder if those soldiers are Franchists or Germans.

Interesting how the rear fuselage and the vertical fin look solid green in the first photo, but not in the second

Hi,
great photos of difficult interpretation.
I think that the base color is silver, on which large bands of a different light color are painted as background for green spaghetti.
