Cringe I knew this one would not beat you.
It is indeed the Yakovlev UT-1b.
As I understand it,the Yakovlev UT-1b was the night attack version of a training aircraft the UT-1. 32 aircraft were modified by VMAU VMF (Training Institute of Soviet navy). The aircraft was armed with 2x ShKAS 7,62mm machine guns and 4 RO-82 (rocket release rails for RS-82 rockets) or altenatively bomb racks for 4 AO-10 bombs.


You regain control
