    The first and second picts are La-7, third is an Il-4, the fourth pict is a stormovik, fifth is a Pe-8, sixth are P-63's escorting a B-25, I assume seven is also. eight is P-63's again.

    No, I believe the first are La-5s, and the second are Lagg-3

    Are you guys sure the first two are both La-7? I've been looking at some other sites and the first pic has radial engines and the second looks like inline. Maybe the second is a Yak-1? Were the Il-4 and Pe-8 good aircraft?

    Interesting. In the first photo in post 2, they're bombing that thing up already. I've read where tanks were driven right from the factory into battle, and I wonder if that's what's going on here as well.

    my bad, the second pict is an inline, but I'm pretty sure the first is La-7

    Second are definitely LaGG-3's. You may be right about the La-7, but I seem to have remembered that the "bump" on the cowling characterized the La-5 and the La-7 was cleaner. Could internet cheat this but no time. Looks like the same factory for both planes which further supports both planes are Lavochkin designs

    I knew the Russians took some shortcuts with safety at times. But risking the whole factory with live bombs on the production line ?

    I wonder if they're just inert bombs for the test flight.
