Painted in a simple pre-war green color. There is a difference in color between the wings and the fuselage. This is the result of a different underground of (real) plane, metal and fabric. The MiG was build of metal and wings of wood. A lot of information can be found on this website: http://mig3.sovietwarplanes.com/

As you can see, the Mig has a few unguided rockets under the wings, rigged for attacking the German invaders.
