BICh-24 and BICh-25 by B.I.Cheranovskij

For almost 20 years after the BICh-21 was flown, B.I.Cheranovskij was in search for new high speed aircraft geometry. During this period no aircraft were flown. Two projects (BICh-24 and BICh-25) show that designer is approaching to highly-swept (with compound sweep) tailless delta supersonic layout.

Those studies were almost realized during 1947- 1948 in futuristic BICh-26
