Very nice, Sinang!  Excellent photograph, especially in closeup.  It's an early straight-winged two-seater, with wooden wings.  Who knows what other wonders the Russians have in their Defence Ministry Central Archives.  Interestingly, this Il-2 has the ShVAK 20mm cannons in the VYa-23-type fairings.  This was done sometimes when there was a shortage of the VYa-23 23mm cannons.

Regards,

Jason
