Picture (28k) from "History of aircraft construction in the USSR", Vol.1 p.81

Development of monoplane by Tereschenko and Pishof, with more powerful engine - one was built with 60hp Gnome and two with 80hp Gnome engines.

Flight tested by military pilots in combat conditions in 1914- 1915. Pilots noticed good flight performance, but poor pilot's sight did not allow to use aircraft for reconnaissance purposes.

Tereschenko-6 was almost identical to Tereschenko-5bis, but was powered by 60hp Rhône engine. Performance was good.
