"Sh-2 was a three-seat wood structured "1"-plane amphibian with twin floats under the short lower wings and retractable landing gear on the sides of the fuselage. The Finns captured two Sh-2s by a plot. A Soviet radio-patrol was captured and forced to send a false message of two Finnish high-ranking officers being captured. They should be picked up at a small Lake S¤ps¤j¤rvi close to Petrozavodsk as soon as possible. In the same evening two Sh-2s landed on the lake and after a change of fire the pilots surrendered. This happened on 28 Aug, 1942. "

Gotta love those Finns!
