As you probably scanned this from a real photo, I would not question its authenticity, but it's strange how the star markings (especially that on the fuselage) looks like they've been pasted into the picture...

In the photo I submitted there's a lot of 'window' glare that might have caused some distortion...

I am not sure, how it is called in English, but in Slovak language it is called overburning. You set up the photocamera to the high contrast (or set up very low aperture) and the results are very strong colours, sharp edges and lost textures. It happens sometimes also to me. Taking the photo through the glass can amplify the effect.

I do know that A-20s and B-25s in Soviet service were at least given NATO codenames, so they were at least believed to have served in some capacity after WWII.
