Yak-140, A.S.Yakovlev


Lightweight jet fighter, a swept-wing aircraft with a nose intake and tandem landing gear. The Yak-140 design with the new AM-11 engine had a very good thrust-to-weight ratio. But all that was built was a single prototype with an AM-9D engine and this was never flown.

Obviously the MiG-21 was preferred.
