Abstract:

In order to reduce resistance while in motion, the redan is attached to the bilge. Because of design characteristics, this amphibious aerosled is usable the year round. During winter it can skid across snow or ice, cross areas of open icy water brushwood areas. In summer it can navigate through water only 7 cm deep or across dry grassland at the rate of approximately 100 m. During spring and fall, it can navigate through thin, breaking ice. The cockpit for a crew of two and freight space is in the center section. The front section has additional freight space. An aviation type motor, M-11 FR, with slot airscrew is installed behind the cockpit. The amphibious aerosled is so designed that changing the motor from an M-11 FR to an AT-14R is easily accomplished. This is effected very simply by changing only the frame, hood and airscrew. Author
