Ilyushin DB-3F (Il-4): Nothing fancy needed.

A characteristically used/abused  Il-4  and its ball-like MV-3 dorsal turret. Thanks to its generous access opening, we can observe the gunner loading the ammo -for the propaganda purposes, I guess- from his 12.7 mm UBT heavy machine gun. He wear the standard issue headgear: the well-known “rectangular” goggles and what seems to be the copy of the Luftwaffe LKp 100 introduced in 1941…., no much space for individuality in the USSR.
