Ain't it strange that the cockpit is closed in the 2nd pic?

Can anyone translate what it says below the cockpit on the planes in the first picture?

Trnsalation is "For the Fatherland " pretty much.
Typically you will see many with "for Stalin" or the details of a workers coopertaive that contributed to the planes building or something like.

How do you color pics? They look very good, indeed.

Yep. But it's more "For the Motherland", if you asked me.
(Za Rodinu! In non kyrillic.)

Hello,

The inscriptions are:

"Za rodinu" - "For the Motherland"
"Za Stalina" - "For Stalin"
"Za Partii Bolshevikov" - "For the Bolshevik Party"

Credit for coloring the pics goes to Massimo Tessitori.
