Fuselage was made of wood, wings - duralumin. Main landing gear - retractable backwards with 90° turn, tailwheel also retractable.
Aircraft was flown since August 1940. It performed very well, but TK-2 turbochargers were faulty and failed to deliver before the German invasion.
Turbochargers problems and bureau evacuation resulted in cancellation of the Su-1.
