A deliberate two-seat coach model, the F-22B was once cancelled, yet construction deliveries are actually occurring, with carrier advent deliberate for 2005. writer Jay Miller has this system heavily to provide an widely researched and well-illustrated evaluation of this topical new fighter within the well-established and acclaimed Aerofax variety and intensity.

Example text

There seems little doubt that reports of the 'BOK-15' really refer to the BOK-11, in which case, for Nil testing, the Nol aircraft was assigned to A B Yumashev and the No 2 to G F Baidukov. In general the BOK-1 Is were similar to the BOK-7, apart from having the massive 1,500hp Charomskii ACh-40 diesel engine to give increased range. The large radiator was in a duct under the leading edge. Each of the long-span ailerons had two mass-balances on its underside, the tailplane was wirebraced, and the elevators and tabbed rudder were fabric-covered.

A different front en- gine was fitted, and the rear engine and its propeller were replaced by an inert mass. The oil coolers were incorporated in the main radiator duct. As the redesigned aircraft neared completion snow was still on the ground, and the landing gears were all replaced by fixed skis. No way was found to make proper use of the bay previously occupied by the rear engine, and in any case performance was now unimpressive. After the German invasion work was abandoned. Plans for an improved S bomber and a derived I (or I-1) fighter with two M-107 engines were also dropped.

It was then judged that the propulsion system was too dangerous to fly. Note: some accounts say the piston engine was installed after the removal of the rocket engine(s), but drawings show the piston-engined aircraft to have had the original wing. The BICh-11 was another wooden aircraft with fabric covering, with a single seat, hinged canopy and trailing-edge elevators and ailerons. It appears to have had no landing gear other than a centreline skid. On the wingtips were rudders, under which were skids.
