Polikarpov I-16   3.25"   4.75"

The Polikarpov 1-16 was a single-seat fighter of Soviet decent. Developed in the early 1930s, the 1-16 became a very popular aircraft based on its high top speed (304 mph) and excellent rate of climb. In fact, over 7,000 I-16s would ultimately be produced. The aircraft was equipped with four 7.62 mm ShKAS machine-guns (some had two 20 mm ShVAK cannons), an option for a 12.7 mm UB machine-gun, and a capacity for 441 pounds of bomb-load on the underwing racks.

Polikarpov I-16

Known primarily for its role in the Spanish Civil War, this advanced monoplane fighter first flew in December of 1933. Featuring revolutionary innovations such as retractable landing gear and a fully enclosed cockpit, by the beginning of World War II the Polikarpov I-16 comprised the heart of the Soviet Air Force. Light and easy to build, the I-16 was both practical and exceptional. Early variants were known for their aerobatic capabilities, including a 1.5 second barrel roll, and later versions lay claim to the title of fastest production fighter, with superior climb rates and a top speed of 282 mph.
