The development of the fast fighter I-3 was made under the rule of N.N.Polikarpov from 1926. After having taken into consideration of several variants for I-3 the German engine BMW-VI was chosen. I-3 represented as a single-strut biplane with a wooden construction in general. The plane is distinguished as aerodynamically clean. Because of the rather heavy engine the weight of I-3 was noticeably bigger than of the other native fighters of those years. The first production prototype of I-3 took tests in the spring, 1928, and showed the greatest speed in the USSR - 290 km/h. In the summer, 1928, the second prototype of I-3 was produced, which took state tests in the Research Institute of Air Force. After the tests the military specialists recommended to pass I-3 into service, and it started to be delivered to combat maneuver units. In general for the period of 1928—1931 389 I-3 fighters were produced. Good design, good level of detailing, proper printing
