VVS Battle of Moscow

During the desperate days of the Battle of Moscow, the Soviet interceptor aircraft, including the renowned pilots of the 120th Fighter Aviation Regiment (120 IAP), faced an onslaught from the formidable German Luftwaffe. Amidst the chaos and uncertainty of aerial combat, the Soviet defenders relied on their courage, skill, and the capabilities of their aircraft to repel the enemy's relentless attacks.

At the forefront of this defense were the Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3s, modified and adorned with striking white paint and bold red arrows bearing slogans such as "Za rodinu" (For the homeland), "Za Stalina" (For Stalin), and "Za Partii Bolshevikov" (For the Bolshevik Party). These symbols of patriotism and loyalty to the Soviet cause not only boosted morale among the defending forces but also struck fear into the hearts of their adversaries.

Pilots like D. Latyshev, A. Popov, and V. Rybalko, flying these iconic white MiG-3s, engaged in intense dogfights against the Luftwaffe's Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters and Junkers Ju 87 Stuka dive bombers. The skies above Moscow became a battleground where every maneuver, every shot fired, could mean the difference between victory and defeat.

Despite facing superior numbers and advanced enemy aircraft, the Soviet interceptor pilots fought with unparalleled determination and bravery. Through their extraordinary efforts, they succeeded in disrupting enemy formations, protecting vital ground targets, and inflicting heavy losses upon the Luftwaffe.

The white MiG-3s with their distinctive red markings became symbols of Soviet resilience and defiance in the face of Nazi aggression. Each mission flown by these pilots was a testament to their unwavering commitment to defending their homeland at all costs.

As the Battle of Moscow raged on, the heroic deeds of these pilots and their aircraft would be etched into the annals of history, serving as a reminder of the courage and sacrifice of those who fought to preserve freedom and independence against overwhelming odds.

Use Guide for the Set VVS Battle of Moscow

  • In the summer of 1941, almost immediately after the start of WW2, new Soviet aviation camouflage AMT paints were introduced, and new black-green camouflage schemes were approved to replace the pre-war single-tone camouflage. While such camouflage excellently concealed aircraft against grassy and leafy green landscapes during the summer, it exposed Soviet aircraft in snowy winter conditions.
  • As a result, during winter, the upper surfaces of aircraft were coated with washable casein paint to enhance camouflage against snow-covered terrain. Aircraft urgently supplied for combat against enemy aviation, such as MiG-3 interceptors, LaGG-3 fighters, and Yak-1s, could receive a permanent white finish directly at aircraft palnts.
  • Sometimes, instead of white, a silver paint could be used, which was also less noticeable against the snow compared to standard green camouflage.
  • During field repairs, aircraft painted in permanent winter camouflage could have components and assemblies from aircraft in summer camouflage installed on them, such as the famous white MiG-3 with green wing consoles taken from another aircraft in the pre-war green color scheme.
