Needed identification help
 
My friend gave me a copy of an interesting picture.
Is's a group of some Guard IAP pilots standing in front of P-39.

I'd like to identify the GIAP - but all my atempts failed.
Can anyone recognize anything familiar? In the middle we can see the HSU awareded pilot...

HSU on the photo seems to be Sergey Dolgushin. Thus, the regiment is most likely to be 30 GIAP.

You may be right. I didn't consider that he could be so... thin. I saw some of his photos taken during war time but they were not very clear.
On this propably postwar photo he looks more " impressively"
