Default Russian drop tanks

Put in short, the question is: did they exist?

In game, AFAIK, La-5 and 7 always had available a couple of droppable tanks. Actually, I was unable to find any evidence that these kind of tanks (80 gal capacity, IIRC) were employed. Moreover, it looks that NONE of the Russian fighters had in use this kind of loadout (with the exception of a couple of experimental LaGG-3 Series 11).

So, was this sort of escamotage to get in game enough range for the Lavochkin fighters? Or I missed something? Besides, I think would be interesting to understand reason of this choice (I mean avoiding use of auxiliary tanks by Soviets, if this is true).
