R-9, S.A.Kocherigin

Drawing (20k) of R-9 from 'Modelist-Konstructor' magazine;

Development of already tested in 1935 TsKB-27/SR. Unreliable retraction mechanism of the last one and rush to come up with new design killed the progressive project - R-9 had fixed landing gear, providing huge drag. Flight stability also suffered.

Pre-series batch production started, but was aborted in a short time. R-9 lost a contest with Neman's R-10.
