the TA-4 is a small amphibian projected in partnership with Transal AKS

I have the company as AKS-Invest. Who's right, who's wrong?

Hi Stargazer,


may be both we are right,that is because,in the book; Osprey Encyclopedia
of Russian Aircraft,which was appeared in 1990s,may be,it was its name,and
change to AKS-Invest later.

It was Transal-AKS when I was working there. I presume AKS-Invest was its funding arm, as it was the trend in those days to create multiple corporate entities for new projects.

I thought I had the Ta-4 brochure in my files but to no avail. Instead, I found a similar project MiG was working on (or rather piggy backing in search for funding) at the same time in partnership with Aero-Ric, the Dingo.
Here is the brochure.

Brilliant, Luc! Didn't know MiG had any involvement in the Dingo. At what level, exactly?

Unfortunately I do not remember, but unlike the Ta-4 the Dingo was not visible on some general MiG brochures I still have here, so I suppose it was not at a high level.

Hi,

MiG-201 is twin boom light utility transport aircraft powered
by two turboprop engine and Myasishchev M-70 is regional jet
airliner projects.


My dear Toura,


may be the MiG-201 in your file is an early imagine for it,we know the MiG-201 was
developed from MiG-110.

You are correct it never was a MiG project but someone, MiG or Aerorik, tried (on the basis of the Ta-4 experience which is similar) because it is where I got the brochure among other partnership projects, when I was involved with one of those.
Maybe the connection is too tenuous to justify its presence in this thread.

Pretty neat - a small An-2 successor? It'd be interesting to see range and runway lengths for such a project.
