I-16 type 5
Unit: Escuela de Vuelo de Alta Velocidad
Serial: no codes

El Carmoli (Murcia), probably 1938. Both the chemical base of the paints and the application methods used by the Republicans during the Spanish Civil War, make any colour comparison with today's FS values highly uncertain. The 'Moscas' repaired and repainted in Spain tended in time towards a reddish shade, as though rusting, exactly like some Japanese paints of 1944. Exposed to the Mediterranean sun, sea salt, and dusty aerodromes, the dark green would very soon turn into an apparently much lighter shade, as though sandpapered, and the undersides light blue would appear much darker, almost turning towards Grey.

I-16 type 5
Unit: unknown
Serial: no codes

Unknown location and date. Yet another variation on the 'extended black engine cowling' theme, this unnumbered Type 5 has had its forward fuselage undersides totally painted in black. A little gone too far in covering exhaust stains? The unpainted propellers had a very bright aluminium colour, so some propellers were also painted black on the rear and others completely in black, although these were the exceptions.

I-16 type 5
Unit: 1 Esquadrille de Moscas
Serial: 1

Pilot - Maj Lt Sergey Fedorovich Tarkhov, 1 Escuadrilla CO. Alcala de Henares (Madrid), November 1936. On 15 November 1936, on their first ever combat mission, the I-16s from 1 Escuadrilla de Moscas were engaged by three Nationalist Fiat CR.32s, but the fight ended without loss to either side. The following day they would shoot down two CR.32s. During this time all the 'Moscas' were being flown by Soviet pilots. The first non-Soviet pilots began to join the 'Mosca' squadrons only in May of 1937. These men included such experienced fighter pilots as the Spaniards Manuel Aguirre and Eduardo Claudin, and the American volunteers Frank Tinker and Albert Baumler.

I-16 type 5
Unit: 1 Escuadrilla de Moscas
Serial: 7

Madrid-Barajas, November 1936. The first I-16 Type 5 that arrived in Spain were painted overall Grey except for the black engine cowling and tail band, which probably covered the factory-applied red stars (Note that the tail band should be black (not red), and that the overall grey colour should have a much lighter shade than shown). This colour scheme was the usual finish in which aircraft were delivered from factories GAZ-1 and GAZ-21 in Moscow and Nizhny-Novgorod. Some contemporary Type 5s based in Manchuria had a very similar colour scheme. These Grey-painted 'Moscas' (flies) participated in the first Battle of Madrid patrolling at roof-top level to bolster the population's morale. From such a low altitude it was also easier to attack the Nationalist Ju.52 bombers from below, taking advantage of their blind spots. The appearance of the tubby I-16s (still painted Grey with black noses), and the way in which they attacked (as if 'from the sewers'), earned them the nickname of 'Ratas' (rats) with which they were to be known by the Nationalist (and later German) airmen. This scornful name could only mask their frustration as disdain, for the nimble 'Mosca' had by then won air superiority over the capital.

I-16 type 5
Unit: 1 Escuadrilla de Moscas
Serial: 9

Madrid (unknown airfield), December 1936. The aircraft of the first two batches (up to number 62) began being painted in a dark green/light blue camouflage scheme from December 1936 to January 1937. However, the engine cowling and the propeller hub retained their original glossy black finish. Initially, these machines kept their individual identification numbers (now painted in white) on the fuselage sides. What seems to be a '9' partially covered by the red band can be seen in this profile. This would suggest that 1 Escuadrilla de Moscas aircraft operated for some time without the red bands, with the tricolour on the rudder and a white serial as the sole identification. This machine was the first I-16 captured by the Nationalists (see profile of Nationalist '1W-1' for further details).

I-16 type 5
Unit: probably 3 Esquadrilla de Moscas
Serial: 33

Carreno (Asturias), late October 1937. Pilot - Sergei Kuznetsov. This was the first I-16 captured by the German Legion Condor in Spain. At the end of the Northern campaign in October of 1937, the Nationalist troops found an intact 'Mosca' at the Carreno airfield strip. Without consulting the Spanish military authorities, 'the Germans crated it and loaded it onto a big truck', secretly sending it to Germany by ship from Vigo for its evaluation.

According to S.Vakhrushev information: the first I-16 was captured on 13th November 1936 near Madrid (previously it was flown by Vladimir Bychkov). So... This aircraft of Sergey Kuznetsov was withdrawn by Republicans due to it's bad condition of the last action.
