KhAI-5 was a prototype of the fast photoreconnaissance aircraft. It featured numerous innovations developed for KhAI-1 aircraft, including retractable gear, wing and control surfaces with stressed skin, internal bomb/camera bay, new type of gunner's turret, and remotely controlled camera capable to make shots at 80° relatively to flight direction. Neman's slogan was "No parts in the air flow", so the whole design was very clean.
Aircraft turned to be very sturdy and lasting for wooden design - still in service until 1943 as reconnaissater and attack aircraft.
Over 490 built.
