    Not exactly sure what manual this is but appears to be a 1945 flight or combat instruction manual. In russian but plenty of pictures also. Well worth a look. Any body read russian for confermation?

    Enjoy!!!

    wow good stuff Micdrow!

    this is a fighter combat instruction manual indeed , issued by the Officers HighSchool of VVS RKKA. This book is signed, check the second page : "to the Col General twice the Hero of the Soviet Union Hrjukin T.T."! (this guy here: Хрюкин, Тимофей Тимофеевич — Википедия) Pretty rare find I must say! Thanks a lot Micdrow!

    Another great find, Micdrow! Keep those Soviet manuals coming. I really need to learn how to read Russian, not just transliterate from Kyrillic (which I can do, slowly).

    Seems that many readers of this thread need -include me, of course- urgently a [email protected] who was capable to translate "on air" this amazing handbook......:walk:

    You can provide the word (perhaps in latin transcription), so we'd be be able to crunch it :)
