Drawing by Tapani Tuomanen

The drawing represents a DB-3 of 1st Gv. MTAB in on February 20, 1943. Photos show that the plane has a dark camouflage, certainly green/black, over the temporary winter camouflage, while the undersurfaces look to have preserved the original silver color of the late '30s. Note that the MV-3 turret was replaced with a later ball-like version from some other plane.
