Damned... hard to chose the game official one . The New alternate is maybe more like "from the battlefield" but the meta informations of the picture are clear : it is a photo from the 30s, just before Stalin purged him. So even if it is the best one, it is not a "proper" one unless we don't have better. I finally saw a date for the improved original : in is from the 20s. Obviously, he got already the 3 same medails he have in the new alternate picture from the 30s. We could supposed that he had already done its 2 big campaign, the Volga and the Poland. The uniform looks like a cavalry one. If i understand the bios he was commanding a cavalry corps during the Poland campaign. So we could suppose that the alternate one could be from 1920 or little more. So this one is the one that could be for the game. About the new one proposed for Grigory Zinoviev (1883–1936), a Bolshevik revolutionary and Soviet politician ; are you sure you not mixt with Georgi Zinovyev (1887–1934), a Soviet military leader ?jack54 wrote:here are both Ghai-Khan images.... you can use whichever image you like better. The improved original or the alternate...

Есть еще одна ошибка.
Эта фотография - не генерала Ончокова (WH3B.F. Onchokov), а полковника Ушакова!
Вот тот же снимок, но с аутентичной подписью.
Наконец - бюст, сделанный с фотоснимка генерала Имшенецкого.

Translation by Orel of the russian wiki:
8 June 1919, after the removal of Makhno from command, the place of the commander of the 3rd Zadnepr( translates as beyond Dnepr) fusilier brigade was given to head of the military area Krusser. 9 June he issued an order proclaiming himself as the commander. Died on the night of 9-10 June 1919 when his armored train was caught under machine gun fire.
(...) Magnificent example of the Red army commander: (...) so much loyalty to the Red cause!

That's all, MG bullets, from?
To his doom, as he was so loyal for the Red,
then he was sent to command Makhno brigade, to assure the control.
Tanks to Jack54 for all these nice pictures.
