Ik-5 (project 1939)

Three view of the Ik-5 twin engined fighter project

It is of interest to note that Rogozarski were working on the further fighter design at the time that German forces occupied Belgrade. This, the IK-5, was to be powered by two Hispano-Suiza 12Y engines and was projected in two versions: a single-seat interceptor and a two-seat long-range “destroyer” with exceptionally heavy nose-mounted armament. Wind tunnel test with models of the IK-5 had been completed, and prototype construction had commenced.
