Light biplane trainer built in Odessa on Aircraft Repair Shops-7 (one of former
Anatra factories). Stock of unused Anatra D parts was
used. Unlike its predecessor, Khioni-5 had no handling problems and was very airworthy.
Intended as a trainer, but at the time there were no shortages of such aircraft. Suddenly, it found service as a crop duster.
Specially it was good fighting locust in Asian republics. Front cockpit was used to house dust tank, dispenser tubes under the
fuselage. For years it remained the 'backbone' aircraft of farm aviation.
Produced on the GAZ-7 (former Lebedev factory) in Penza;
30 built, in service until 1928.
'Koniok-Gorbunok' is a little hunchback horse, hero of Russian folklore.
