Thanks to Ayvieyation for getting me back into making jets.
- Three 30mm NR-30 cannon (One to port, and two to starboard)
- Two K-6 missiles (Guardian missiles)
- Custom landing gear
In December 1952 the Design Bureau of Oleg K Antonov had another go at fighter design when it began studies for this supersonic interceptor project. The Central State Aero- dynamic and Hydrodynamic Institute at Zhukovskiy (TsAGI) had supplied research data and information relating to the theories of low-aspect-ratio wings and the resulting preliminary project was based on this material. The drawing showed a tailed, low delta-winged airplane of small span, a nose intake and one Lyulka AL-7F engine, plus three 30mm NR-30 cannon mounted internally. Preliminary estimates indicated that the aircraft would achieve a top speed in the region of 1,800km/h to 1,900km/h (1,119mph to 1,181 mph) at a height of 10,000m (32,808ft). It would reach 15,000m (49,213ft) altitude in three minutes, have a ceiling between 19,000m and 20,000m (62,336ft and 65,617ft) and an endurance of two and a half hours on its internal fuel. TsAGI looked on the project with favour but the Ministry of Aircraft Industry (MAP) refused to put it into its experimental aircraft program for 1953, so the design stayed on the drawing board.
