Synopsis Needed

Tupolev TB-3[]

First, acting enemy bombers. Roundels are swastikas, but flipped from the Finnish one. Civil German aircraft never used it underwing. So any resemblance is purely coincidental.

Heinkel HD 37[]

Design by Heinkel in 1928 but used only by the Soviet between 1931 and 1934 as I-7.
In 1938, for the movie, the type was decommissioned since long and so could acted as a ground victory record by Soviet bombers.

Fokker D.XXI (model)[]

Soviet bombers crushing enemy planes at their nest.
These lines of parked aircraft, only seen on the ground, are closely those of the Fokker D. XXI. Finland ordered seven airframes in 1937 (delivered in November) and built it under license in 1938.
