Abstract : This article deals with material which appeared in Flugwelt (No. 12, 1967) and Interavia (No 9, 1967) and covers Soviet fighters and fighter-bombers from 1950 to 1965. Illustrated are the E-166 (experimental plane from the Miloyan design group), a Sukhoy single-engine jet fighter (Mig 21), a Sukhoy twin-engine jet pursuit plane, a plane with variable wings based on the Su-7B, a later version of the same, and a long-range twin-jet pursuit plane flying at 2.8-3 times the speed of sound. These planes are compared in available detail with planes of Western manufacture. STOL and VTOL types are also mentiond. The author notes the unusually large number of planes projected in the USSR. He mentions the Hawker-Siddeley P-1127 as the most successful plane of its type and discusses the F-111, Mirage G, and YF-11. He concludes that the large number of new Soviet prototypes indicates that the USSR is again laying great stress on supporting aircraft. (Author)
