Hi all,

I found this nice soviet rekord breaking aircraft: the Sheremetyev (German: Scheremetjew) Sh.13.

I know also the Sh.3 / 4 / 5 / 10 / 13 / 16 / 17 / 18 sailplanes and the ZAOR light plane.

Do you have more information (drawings, pics, technical data) about the not named aircraft?

Thanks Maveric

As you can see on the photo and 3-view you posted ;) , Sh-13 wasn't a sailplane. It was a light aircraft designed for pilots' training in long-range raids and for flight range record attempt in its category. It was made of wood and powered by 45-hp Salmson engine. The aircraft had 4 fuel tanks in wings (total capacity 140 l) and two in fuselage (another 100 l) - 240 l overall; it was enough for more than 20 flight hours which allowed to overcome 2400 km distance (another data specify even 25 hours and 3300 km). The aircraft was 2-seat but the place for second crewman was very simply equipped, his seat had canvas backrest; for the record flight, it would be removed and additional fuel tank mounted instead.

The aircraft was tested since April 1939 in Tushino near Moscow, by Pavel Golovin. He was already Hero of Soviet Union, renowned polar aviator, the first Soviet pilot to fly over North Pole (on May 5, 1937). From October 1938 he was a test pilot of Moscow Zavod No.22. A year later Sh-13 first flights, on April 27, 1940 Golovin crashed with Polikarpov SPB...

During tests, Sh-13 demonstrated quite good flight performances but it was one problem. Its engine power allowed takeoff with fuel only for 10 hours. The Salmson wasn't new - it was hardly used, its service life was almost served out; therefore Sh-13 was tested also with another engines - in particular, with opposite Bristol Cherub; but it was even less powerful - 36 hp. There was no possibility to obtain more suitable engine; also there is no info about actual attempts of long-range raids with Sh-13.

Technical data for Sheremetyev Sh-13:
Wing span - 13.0 m
Length - 5.9 m
Wing area - 10.9 m2 (another source: 10.56 m2)
Empty weight - 397 kg
Fuel weight - 175 kg (for 20 flight hours)
Takeoff weight - 663 kg
Powerplant - one Salmson AD-9, 9-cylinder radial, 45 hp
Maximum speed - 180 km/h
Landing speed - 90 km/h
Climbing to 1000 m - 14 minutes
Service ceiling - unknown

Some more Sheremetyev designs:

Chaika (Чайка - Seagull) - single-seat basic training glider. Built in 1927 at gliding circle in Belgorod; participated in 4th All-Union gliding contest in Koktebel (September 18 to October 3, 1927). The first Sheremetev aircraft known for me.
Technical data:
Wing span - 12.0 m
Wing area - 19.2 m2
Wing aspect ratio - 7.5
Empty weight - 125 kg
Flight weight - 195 kg

(Other data unknown)

Sh-7 - two-seat training glider: generally - a simplified and unweighted Sh-5 version. Built in 1934 by Osoaviakhim's Glider factory (Planernyi Zavod) in Tushino; took part in 10th All-Union gliding contest (September 1 to October 6, 1934).
Technical data:
Wing span - 15.2 m
Length - 6.9 m
Wing area - 22.3 m2
Wing aspect ratio - 10.3
Empty weight - 163 kg (for comparison: Sh-5 - 220 kg)
Flight weight - 323 kg
Gliding ratio (L/D ratio) - 15.8:1


Sh-8 - further development of Sh-5 and Sh-7, also 2-seat training glider. Participated in 11th All-Union gliding contest (September 6 to October 6, 1935).
Technical data:
Wing span - 15.2 m
Length - 7.2 m
Wing area - 20 m2
Wing aspect ratio - 11.6
Empty weight - 220 kg
Flight weight - 380 kg
Gliding ratio (L/D ratio) - 17.5:1


Sh-11: a glider - flying testbed, based on Sh-10. Built in 1937. The glider became 1-seat; the second cockpit was occupied by experimental technique. The task was to get the fundamental flight characteristics (including L/D ratio) without on-ground measurements, using only on-board equipment. The measurement procedure was developed by TsAGI aerodynamics specialist Max Taytz (Макс Тайц, 1904-1980). Also it was planned to use Sh-11 for G-loads measuring and for thermics researching. Its strength allowed to fly in every weather conditions, in tow with speeds up to 200 km/h, and to perform aerobatics.

If this has become a generic Sheremetyev topic, the title should reflect it... Thanks in advance.
