It was very un-MiG like. Light high-wing canard monoplane with pusher propeller, built of wood with fabric cover, built to study behavior of the swept wing at low speed.
Aircraft was flown in two variants, differed by location of rudders (see pictures). Test pilots A.I.Zhukov and A.N.Grinchik flew it the end of 1945. Amazingly, it performed well without any modifications - quite unusual for canard scheme.
It was also tried as liaison aircraft, but there already some available (OKA-38/Shs).
