1) The “S” aircraft general arrangement drawings approved in 1937.

Variants of the “S” aircraft proposed in 1937:
2) - reconnaissance aircraft with range of the flight before 2200км
3) – attack aircraft (maximum arms 20 Ultra SHKAS)
4) – near-bomber
5) – heavy fighter (anti-bomber). Soviet “shragge-music” from 1937
6) – the “S-1” aircraft side elevation
7) – the “S-1” prior to flight test. January 1940

Hi Borovik,

I already knew about this magnificent airplane, as well as the "sparka" tandem engined concept. But what about the projected "D" bomber, with two "sparka"? Do you have any drawing about it? Best regards,

Wurger

Thanks, Borovik. This is really interesting stuff.

I don't quite understand the armament of the anti-bomber version of the S-1. Is it armed with a normal recoilless rifle (http://ram-home.com/ram-old/gun-drp.html) or two normal guns facing in opposite directions to cancel recoil?

Am I correct to assume that the attack variant of the S-1 should read 2 x Ultra SHKAS instead of 20?

Thanks,

GK-37; GK-45
Beside constructor Kondakova was and 45-mm gun like to designs. The Gun had two barrels, shooting for mutual exception of the return in opposite directions simultaneously.
From one barrel shooting was to produce combat shell, from the other - an weight ingot. Moreover, each barrel could become combat. Range of the shooting -4км.
( In wing-mounted variant GK-37, was provided cartridge/magazine from 24 (12 + 12) shells. Automation worked to account of the energy powder gas)
Am I correct to assume that the attack variant of the S-1 should read 2 x Ultra SHKAS instead of 20?
Exactly 20 Ultra SHKAS ! In S-Shturmovik version.
There were and other more exotic precedents.

Have you guys seen this awesome scratchbuilt model by Frank Mitchell?
I suggested this oddball to him and fired some drawings his way, and he did his usual scratchbuilt magic! Just fantastic! B)

Original profile view of the proposed "S" in 1937, and beautiful profiles and three-view arrangement, all from the French Air Magazine N°4:

Re: Re: Bolkhovitinov S

They look like reproductions from the drawings of Poligon magazine nr.2. It ran an excellent article on the "S" including many drawings and detail photos. Drop me a pm with your e-mail address if interested and I'll send you the same package of scans on which Frank based his model.
