RAF,that RAF-1 was ultra-light low-wing monoplane of 1925,
RAF-2 was two-seat cantilever low-wing monoplane of 1926
and the RAF-11 was twin-engined low-wing small tarnsport
aircraft of 1935,nobody knows the RAF-3 to RAF-10 ,and
if they were a projects or not.
the Company also built the Turbolyet O a VTOL design in

Re: Rafaelyants aircraft

At this time found no value data of RAF-3 on the RAF-10. It is known that he was the friendships involved a modification of aircraft Polikarpov R-5 and U-2 in the passenger variants. In the fullest possible it their indifitsiroval as RAF but the literature found no given sign.
Here's a sample list of works Rafaelyantsa:
- RAF in January 1925 a light aircraft;
- RAF-February 1926 a light aircraft;
- P-5 "limousine" modification of R-5 Polikarpov 1931 passazhisky option;
- Project "Letayushego tank" 1932 glider to carry a tank through the air;
- PR-5 modification of R-5 Polikarpov 1934 passazhisky option;
- PR-12 modification of R-5 Polikarpov 1938 passazhisky option;
- RAF-11 passenger plane in 1939
- U-2 modification of the U-2, Polikarpov in 1941 for transportation of aviation fuel;
- U-2L "limousine" modification Polikarpov U-2 in 1943 passazhisky option;
- Project U-2 modification of the U-2 (Po-2) Polikarpov 1957 passazhisky option for 7 passengers;
- Turbolet experimental apparatus for vertical take-off 1957.

I would be grateful if you submit your photo or 3 schemes of RAF-2.

Nice to have you back! I always have appreciated and valued what you bring.

Is it confirmed that the MTS photo is of a full sized aircraft and the Burnelli inspired design flew in Russia? I also wonder how accurate the drawing is: The drawing looks like a different variation and is almost a perfect copy of some Burnelli designs.

Thank you very much, Avimimus, for kind words!
MTS never flew - it was only a project. Mind also - there were two variants: with M-34 engines and GR Jupiter.
See in attch. two more pix with M-34.

Best regards
