    The selection of photos is interesting. I would not attribute all the photos to the concept of "Soviet aviation."
    Comments on the photographs would be more complete if the mark of the aircraft depicted was indicated.
    Question by photo No.5. I-16 in the 1942 year produced?

            This is what?
            The question was:
            Quote: igordok
            I-16 in 1942 produced?

            Your Answer:
            Quote: Tlauicol
            produced, not in Moscow, but in Rostov-on-Don

            Hence the logical question: who produced the I-16 in Rostov in 1942? what

      This service was called - VNOS, aerial surveillance, notification and communications. The following tasks were assigned to the airborne aerospace defense divisions: detection of an air enemy, warning of troops (objects)
      guidance of their aircraft to air and ground targets. The technique is simple - they sat and listened in the “plane-hazardous” direction. Like acoustics on boats.

    If before the collective farmer could afford to "buy" Yak-3, now perhaps only Abramovich will pull the su-34. Equipment has risen in price, has risen in price ... winked (PS: Thank you for the excellent photos, I would like to see models of airplanes and bombs in the signatures.)

      The question is, why is “Aerocobra” exactly N and not L or K? request

        Since April, 1943, having on his account 17 air victories (9 personal and 8 group), flew the personal fighter P-39N "Aircobra" with the inscription "Krasnoyarsk Komsomol". The story of the appearance of this aircraft in the front sky is as follows.

    In general, picture No. 5 raises a lot of questions, that there is no doubt that this is not an aircraft factory, all three cars are of different modifications. Moreover, I doubt that the third one is I-16. Most likely these are some kind of aircraft workshops. There are a lot of doubts that 42g, t. K. the first two cars are silver, and even the front parts of the blades are painted with silver, they did so up to 40 g. The paint has no visible wear and signs of restoration was probably operated in a region with a mild climate (only around ratchet, it’s not entirely new). Second moment -shades in the workshop; in42gRostov, Moscow already more mbili, so that at least they should have been removed according to the instructions on preparing the enterprise for air raid (I don’t remember the exact length of the document). Apparently the second car is the UTI-4 machine gun tunnels above the engine. traces of firing from on-board weapons. Most likely a pre-war photo taken somewhere in the south of the country. PS: this is to the dialogue between Vladimirts and Tlauikol, just the comments didn’t go there recourse

      By the way, Vladimir is also right drinks : the plant is nominally Rostov, but it was evacuated to Baku. Hence, there may be light bulbs and a light roof of the workshop. And repairs at the factories were also made - hence the motleyness of the machines. IMHO

        The plant itself was not involved in repairs, even the NKAP order existed on this subject (on mobilization and production plans), the maximum was an experienced workshop that could do something (as a rule they brought samples not accepted by military acceptance) but they were isolated into separate production facilities, with their own a plan for which they strictly asked. An exception is the plant in Kazan, it was obliged to carry out repairs of the Pe-8, which it built, as a rule, was combined with some modernization. In general, there were repair plants, often workshops (let’s name it doesn’t bother, in fact this is the same plant only by military personnel). The level of specialists was such that the design bureau often considered proposals for rationalization.

    The author lost sight of Mig-3, which is not surprising - this is one of the fastest interceptors with a huge flight ceiling, which took part in the Great Patriotic War, which defended the skies of Moscow and defended our Black Sea Fleet.

    Here's another interesting photo of the trophy thing. Compare the forms of our attack aircraft and the German - who stole our entire talent? It is not the Germans or the Japanese who should be leaders in design, but we.

      if the word "thing" meant Yu-87 then it's not him (it seems more likely Fw -190)

        Trophy FW-190 were used with us.

        Kudishin I.V. Fokke-Wulf Fighter FW-190 publishing house Astrel Publishing House 2001

        On the topic, from page 124:
        The Soviet Army captured a large number of FW-190Ds at East German airfields. Part of the captured equipment was destroyed on the spot — the planes simply crushed tanks, and part was surpassed in the USSR. After the flight in LII, the plane received a very high rating. Do not forget that in terms of speed and altitude the "long-nosed" was even superior to La-11, which appeared after the war, somewhat inferior to the latter only in terms of power and accuracy of the volley. There is unverified information that up to 1948-1949gg. a number of Dor was in service with the Baltic Fleet naval aviation and in air defense units (in particular, in the Khabarovsk Territory) along with Spitfires and Kingcobra.

          And what is "DOR"?
          Vicki says that the Germans called their “brainchild” with a “broken tail”: “Würger” - “Shrike” (a small bird of prey). Also a literal translation of it. Würger: strangler, killer.

          Truly language has power, it sounds in our opinion like a magpie-thief.

            "Dora" is the word designation of the letter index D in the name of the aircraft FW-190D.

      This is not an Foker assault variant, but an interceptor variant.

    "Piece" - such a nickname was the Yu-87, we have a raptor, and this is the FV-190d. They passed our test after the war.

    The article plus is just for these photos!
    In photo No. 8, factory No. 21 where La-5, La-5f, La-5fn was produced (in any encyclopedia, under this photo they write La-5f on the conveyor of factory No. 21) in photo No. 61 again is a retouched photo. when, but in a nutshell, in the original in the foreground, the IL-2 under the cockpit carries a direct lightning with the inscription "Avenger" on keel No. 25. For some reason, since 84, this photo has been presented in this form, I don’t know the reason, the only thing I know on this board that it was part of 16 VA. Whoever has more detailed information can share, I can pay.

    Photo No. 55 was either done in a mirror version or our major violated the rules for wearing orders: the "Red Star" was always worn on the RIGHT side of the chest, and on his left. Especially in the 1943 year!

      Many artists had armor from the draft, they had to raise morale in the army with their creativity. And high morale was more important than 10 additional fighters from the same artists. It was just that the people who led the country understood that art in war is no less important than weapons.
