In the first 2 paintings there are red flags for the Russians. The first painting looks like it had little yellow stars and in the 2nd one it looks like a unit designation pennon. Does anyone have an data as to what these are and what flags or pennon the Russians would of or may have carried with them?

I've decided to sell my Russians as I want to continue my main project and I may have some Russians and Central Asians made at the smaller scale that I'm involved in right now.  http://theminiaturespage.com/market/msg.mv?id=104928&page=1

The expeditionary corps under the command of General Skobelev was assigned a naval artillery detachment of Lieutenant Sheman, armed with two 44 mm Engström rapid-fire cannons and four rifle-caliber mitrailleuses. These were rare, one might even say unique, guns developed by DeWitt Clinton Farrington and were not used in battles anywhere except in Russia.

Cuprum,
The Russian Army had a special corps for operations in Central Asia.I had this information once but have now lost it.You don't have any information on the organization do you?

I have no information on the banners of the Russian troops used in campaigns. I can assume, by analogy with the period of the First World War, that the "striped" flag is the flag of the army headquarters (in our case, the expedition).

The second flag depicts the personal flag of General Mikhail Skobelev, but this is how it looked, apparently, during the Russian-Turkish war. During the Akhal-Teke expedition, this flag looked different:

I am not aware of any special corps. Each time for the next campaign, new detachments were formed. Here you need to talk about a specific campaign.
