Hi,

who know this ?;
(As the Kometa emerged, it looked very much like a half-scale unpiloted MiG-15 fighter. Initially, the Kometa was to be powered by an RD-20 turbojet, a copy of the German BMW-003, but it wasn't powerful enough, and so a RD-500K, a copy of the British Rolls Royce Derwent V turbojet designed for expendable operation, was used instead. Three piloted versions known as "Analogs" were built for testing, with first flight in January 1951. The Analog looked something like a "toy" jet fighter, with a cockpit and canopy crammed into limited space, and bicycle retractable landing gear with wingtip outriggers. A single MiG-9 fighter was also modified to test the guidance system).
