One of the very early Il-12 double-tailed project with ACh-31 engines. Note the shape of the fuselage nose part - it was used than in Il-18 (1947)
That was the Il-30 which was completed but never flown owing to concerns over the structural strength of the wings.hesham said:Also in my files,
there was a Project version of Il-28,had a swept wing shape.
No my dear Hood,Hood said:
It was called Il-28S,a Project for front bomber with two VK-5 engines.hesham said:Also in my files,
there was a Project version of Il-28,had a swept wing or arrow wing shape.
So I have two Il-38 drawings. Landing gear shape is different.
Explanation of top drawing is as follows. http://alternathistory.com/proekty-frontovykh-bombardirovshchikov-il-38-i-il-42-sssr
"At the insistence of SV Ilyushin, IL-38 was carried out in triple. Defensive weapons were the same as Il-28: two HP-23 guns protected the front hemisphere, and the Il-K6 feeder with two HP-23 covered the rear hemisphere. The main support of the chassis was four - under each of the nacelles there were two supports. They had one wheel each and retracted one forward, the other back. At the same time, the wheels were rotated 90 ° and laid flat into the lower part of the nacelle.
The bomber project received a positive evaluation from the customer, who, however, deemed it necessary to improve the aircraft's take-off data by installing more powerful engines."
