Prototype of close support bomber, reconnaissater, escort aircraft developed within contest project 'Ivanov' (1937- 1938). Fuselage had plywood (3-2mm thick) construction. It was assembled from left and right halves glued together, covered with fabric and polished. Wing with steel 2T-profiled spars covered with 0.8mm duralumin. Assembly technic provided very clean surface.
Main gear and tailwheel were retractable (pneumatically). Aircraft was very well armed.
Polikarpov's aircraft was 20km/h slower, but had better range and much more powerful armament.
Two were built with slightly different armament and equipment, only one was flown.
