Polikarpov I-153: Reality Strafes.

Operation Barbarossa, summer 1941. Looks like these poor “Chaikas” were caught with their proverbial pants -almost literally- down. For them the war was off from the very beginning, but fellow “Chaikas” and their ultra-brave pilots had a long and unequal struggle ahead. They prevailed.

A magnificent pic in any case.
