    Looks like Raketa to me as well. The tower on the case is St Peter and Paul Fortress St Petersburg (which was Leningrad in 1942.)

    Well i think it's to commemorate the Yakoulev fighter planes maybe .The silhouette of the small plane looks similar to a Yak-9 fighter / bomber from 1942 and i think the other is Yakoulev too . But not 100% on any of this . DW.

    Literally: "Fifty years of the aerial army"


    (*) "Aerial Army" is in genitive so the endings may not be what appears in a dictionary.

    Generally speaking, if it is a piece of military hardware, or a date of military significance, it will have shown up on a watch dial.
