||= Russian Language Site
Various Sites with Drawings of VVS Aircraft
- Arsenal Drawings
Download : The GPW VVS drawings on this site are limited to the MiG-3
and Tupolev SB, but these are very well done.
- Base 13 Library : Some
of the drawings are easy to find, some are downloads, while others are attached
to a brief "history" page. Since it's all in Cyrillic it's not that easy to
navigate in for non-Cyrillic knowing individuals.

for carrying a lot of decals, VVS included
