'110' by D.L.Tomashevich

40k b/w picture from "History of aircraft construction in the USSR", Vol.2 p.268

Single-seater fighter created by detained team. It was powered by 1*1400hp M-107P engine, heavily armed, well protected and with long operation range. Aircraft was designed for mass production by minimal skill workers.

Powerplant with radiator and propeller, control system, wings, tail section of fuselage were manufactured separately and than put together without any fitting. All production cycle was split into separate procedures, no longer than 3min each.

Radiator was installed under the engine, adding distinctive 29dm2 'beard'. Four fuel tanks (protected against 12.7mm ammunition) located in wings. Pilot seat protected by 13mm armor.

Protection, armament, range and simplicity were achieved on expense of the weight and size. '110' was bigger and heavier than other Soviet fighters of the time. Nonetheless, it successfully passed all trials in 1943.

In 1942 there already were some successful fighters in production, and the I-110 remained a prototype. The fact that M-107P engine was not yet ready for mass production also contributed to '110' cancellation.
