Katiuska reconnaissance

Post by Spearfish » 01 Feb 2018 15:35

I have read that in each escuadrilla of SB or Katiuska bombers had one fitted for photo-reconnaissance with an underside window. However, during the Winter War of 1939-1940 there were Russian complaints about the absence of such a photographic reconnaissance capability. Were dedicated cameras supplied to Spain so that the Katiuska could be used in the photo-reconnaissance role or did the crews simply use hand-held cameras?
