Sorry Hesham,
but seems these information are not so interesting. The text says something like:

"According to the currently documented information, the description of these devices are not available. It is assumed that these designations could be used to define D.P. Grigorovich's naval fighters".

My Russian is very poor, if I'm wrong please correct my transation.

If anyone is interested
In August - September 1916 Grigorovich was working on two models of marine fighter was supposed to take as a basis of M-9 for different engines. (According M.Maslov)
M-13 with 150 HP engine Hispano-Suiza
M-14 with 135 HP engine Clerget
The details about them are missing and we just know :S.Shchetinin such models are not produced. Most likely, the spring of 1917 both projects moved to the Experimental plant by D.Grigorovich and transformed it, respectively, in the M-19 and M-17 (according to A. Alexandrov)
