There have been problems with the continuity of this domain in recent time, causing a long blackout between January and March 2017.

So, I have decided to upload the site 'Sovietwarplanes pages' at a new address:

It is not as easy to remember as Sovietwarplanes, but one can bookmark it.

I hope it won't have the same problems of this one.

The new site has been updated with a new page on La-7; other pages will be uploaded and updated in the future.

On the other hand, I don't think to update this old page any more, at least if I won't have guarantees on the continuity of this domain.

I invite you to look at the new main page
