I know that there are lot of rare projects of Soviet being before 1941. BOK-7/11 for example. I have no idea about what exactly they are. But I believe you can do it here to tell me what they are? If someone has already posted this kind of thread, I should ask mod to delet this one.

These are not unbuilt projects but prototypes or experimental aircraft.

Name for the second image is Pishnov.

As for MI-4 and MI-13 in the first picture, we'd need to see the page to determine the name of the designer.

This is too small I'm afraid. However, the paragraph that mentions "MI-4" and "MI-13" doesn't seem to indicate a designer. Previous paragraph was about Polikarpov R-Z and I-17, next one is about Tupolev's ANT-40.

The "MI-13" is described as heavy fighter / attack version of the SB (ANT-40), armed with one 25-mm (?? - Such a caliber never existed in the Soviet Union...) nose cannon and two movable machine guns. I think they meant the DI-8 (ANT-46), but described it under the wrong name and placed not very correct picture of it. Once I described the actual DI-8 here: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,7951.msg70342.html#msg70342.

The "MI-4"... a beautiful aircraft, but seems to be pure fiction :( . According the article it was not even a project, but a real prototype flown in 1932 - the naval fighter with M-17 engine and interchangeable landing gear (wheels or floats). But I don't know any real Soviet fighter with similar appearance ??? .

It seems that the Czech author thought that "MI" index means Morskoi Istrebitel (maritime fighter) - the "MI-13" is also described as naval aircraft. But in reality, "MI" stood for Mnogomestnyi Istrebitel (multiplace fighter}; so the aircraft like this "MI-4", if it would exist, could not carry such a name. There was actually a specification for an aircraft named MI-4: it was issued for TsAGI (i.e. Tupolev) as a replacement for their unsuccessful MI-3 (ANT-21). It was scheduled into the prototype aircraft construction plan for the years 1934/35, together with its bomber version called BB (Blizhniy Bombardirovschik - Short range bomber). The real MI-4 would be a twin-engine monoplane with two Wright Cyclone or Hispano-Suiza 12Y engines. The bomber version of it turned at least into the SB (ANT-40), while MI-4 itself was cancelled (or we can say it incarnated into the DI-8?)

The most funny thing is that if MI-4 (the real one) would be built, it could look much like "MI-13" from this article... ;)

Plane Pe- 6 motors M - 107A (formerly - Pe -2D ) was a direct result of the idea Pe -2F . It is built using the second copy of the aircraft modification "F ", having serial number 5/134 . This option involves increasing gross weight up to 9900 kg , the implementation of all changes to the aerodynamics of the type of Pe- 2B , including the transfer of oil cooler and suction pipes in the wing to improve the shape of the engine nacelles . Expected to gain maximum flight speed of the order of 590 km / h and a range of 1,500 km at a normal bomb load of 1000 kg. Defensive armament was designed by type Pe- 2V, including increased pilot lamp with navigational turret " FZ " .


In the autumn of 1943. Myasishcheva enticed more radical idea radical recycling concept bomber . New look based on the success of the British high-speed aircraft, " Mosquito " deprived of defensive weapons . Gradually work on Pe- 6 stopped , but "Soviet Mosquito " was created accelerated pace . Myasischev donated "six" in favor of " pie in the sky " - the future of Pe-2I . Car number 5/134 was later used in the factory number 26 for debugging option " pawns " with motors VK -108 .

That BOK-13 is quite impressive, but I don't buy the transport designation. Were that massive engine, long wings and clearly pressurized cockpit and cabin all for carrying six passengers? Seems ludicrous for a transport, but as a long range, high altitutude reconnaissance aircraft project disguised as a transport, it makes a lot of sense.

Slight possibility that the idea was to get extreme range from high-altitude flight?

First time I saw this designs and the bok-13 is very interesting because it's very advanced: massive engine, long wings and clearly pressurized cockpit and cabin but "fixed undercarriage"? It's a bit strange. Sadly we don't have more drawings.
