MiG-9/'IKh'/I-210, A.I.Mikoyan/M.I.Gurevich


The first attempt to fit radial engine to the MiG-3 airframe. Straightforward approach resulted in failure - bulky engine and worser than expected match with slim fuselage, there were many 'whistles' - unsealed holes, introducing additional drag. Aircraft suffered from poor handling and tail vibrations.

Five were built in evacuation (end of 1941) and flown in 1942 (supervising engineer I.G.Lazarev, pilot V.E.Golofastov).
