Biplane fighter. Development of the I-15 with a straight upper wing and a more powerful engine; The I-152 was used in Spain and China, and also fought in WWII.
Flown with DM-2 ramjet engines in December 1939. As happened with other experiments with additional ramjets on fighters, outcome was negative. When ramjet is 'off', drag is too high. When 'on' - fuel consumption too high.
