AM-35, Mikulin

High altitude engine, one of the most powerful in the world at the time. Fighter use had serious disadvantage - there were no opportunity to install cannon firing through the shaft. As a result MiG-1 and MiG-3 fighters were obviously underarmed.

It also was not good for low flying ground attackers - there were no high altitude applications for this class of aircraft, and on low altitude superchargers consumed too much power without much positive effect.
