I-211, S.M.Alexeev

Twin-engined jet fighter. The I-211 was similar to the project 302, but with turbojets instead of ramjets/rocket combination, and engines lifted to mid-wing nacells (more famous than the 302, but later aircraft with similar silhouette was British Gloster Meteor).

It was underpowered, also because the TR-1 engines never delivered the expected thrust. Abandoned in favor of the I-215.

One built.
