    Also looks like she might have been re-armed with 'local' weapons.

    I have read that the Russians take off Browning and replace Ubs or Berezina 12.7mm machine guns.
    I understand that the changes were the so-called field conversions.

    Soviets put one 12.7 mm UBS and one 20 mm ShVAK in each wing. + rockets under wings

    Also not Berezina 12.7mm MG because the Berezina is a river of the Belarus and a tributary of Dnieper River. Berezin is a name. Michail Berezin was a Soviet designer of UB (the Berezin's Universal) and the BS (the Berezin Synchronized) series of machine guns. The UBK, UBS and UBT 12.7mm MGs were accepted into service on April 22, 1941. Just to make it clear.
