I-195, N.N.Polikarpov

From magazine 'Aviatsia i Vremia', courtesy of Sergey V. Andreev;

The idea of maneuverable biplane fighter was still popular among military specialists. N.N.Polikarpov in Summer 1940 tried to bring speed of biplane closer to monoplane fighters by fitting powerful M-90 engine to airframe similar to I-190. Other improvements included complete removal of bracing wires/tapes and enclosed cockpit.

Project was doomed from the very beginning and was never realized.
