TsKB-27/SR, S.A.Kocherigin

Contour drawing (12k) of TsKB-27/SR from 'Modelist-Konstructor' magazine

Advanced design of high speed reconnaissance monoplane, tested at NII VVS during Summer 1935. Despite record high speed, military experts turned it down because of unsuccessful mechanism of gear retraction. Attempts to bring aircraft into production "on any price" killed the project - next modification (R-9) had fixed landing gears and lost contest with Neman's R-10;
