Thank you very much for posting this. I first read of him years ago.

The figure to the left may be holding Kazakov's armament.

“In June 1915, Staff-Captain Alexander A. Kazabov (sic), flying a Morane scout, used a grapnel to attack a German Albatross. The Russian ace went on to destroy another 31 aircraft, using more conventional armament” (Tryckare 862).

Most people in the West and especially the US know little about the Russian air force in WWI. They think that Russia was still back in the 19th century.
