No warranty for the Ambrosini/Aerfer drawings, they are old ones, too, today I don't even know why I made them ! For the Hawker types I used the drawings in Tony Butlers "British Secret Jet Fighter Projects" as a pattern, just making 5-views of them. The Dassault drawings will be brought to a better quality one day, but don't ask me when !

Hmm, before 1953 - the aircraft was also mentioned in Der Flieger 12/1952 (p244). Justo, Skybolt, Archipeppe - do you have a more accurate date?

Those earliest Ambrossini jet fighters remind us of Yakovlev’s earliest jet fighters.

The Yak-15 incorporated the fewest possible airframe modifications to add a Luftwaffe-surplus jet engine to an existing Yak-3 airframe. They even retained the tail-wheel.
After burning too many tail wheels, Yak-15s were built with tricycle landing gear, but they retained the straight wings from Yak-3s.
They only served the Russian Air Force briefly and primarily as conversion trainers for pilots already qualified on Yak and Lavovchin prop-driven fighters.
