Additional Information about the I-185

We’re including these two aircraft as a token of gratitude to V. Loginov - the founder of the sukhoi.ru resource that was very supportive throughout the year of creation of the Il-2; and with esteem to his grandfather, who had the honour of test-flying these two.

I-185 with the M-82 engine was intended to be the I-185 with increased armament. Instead of two large-caliber and two small-caliber machine guns the I-185 M-82 was equipped with three 20mm ShVAKs. In addition to that the plane also had a redesigned canopy, gear struts and fuselage. Altogether two prototypes were built; the first flew on July 21st 1941. Both I-185 M-82s participated in front-line trials between December of 1942 and January 1943.

Advantages:
Excellent speed characteristics
Ease of control
Powerful armament

Disadvantages:
Slower climb rate than I-185 M-71.

I-185 M-71 (production standard), 1942

Type: multi-role fighter.

500 kg of bombs

The I-185 prototype equipped with the M-71 engine which first flew on June 10, 1942 was designated a “production standard”, i.e. a prototype which was to be used as a standard for future production. Compared to other prototypes of the series many defects were resolved and the overall aerodynamics improved. The I-185 M-71 production standard was built from the blueprints intended for serial production.

The I-185 M-71 production standard, in addition to the I-185 M-71 #6204 and two I-185 M-82 went through front line combat testing between December of 1942 and January of 1943. Speed and climb rate of this prototype were vastly superior to all contemporary Soviet fighters. However due to political reason and lobbying from Polikarpov’s enemies the project never entered production and was cancelled.

Advantages:
Excellent speed characteristics
Excellent climb rate
Ease of control
Powerful armament

Disadvantages:
Uncomfortable throttle lever
