Ye-8, A.I.Mikoyan/M.I.Gurevich

(300k!)

E
xperimental fighter. The Ye-8 was a single-seat, single-engined aircraft with a delta wing and tail surfaces similar to that of the MiG-21, but also with canard foreplanes. The fuselage was similar to that of the X-31 or the EFA (how long it took for the West to copy abandoned Soviet project...) with a rectangular variable geometry intake under the front fuselage, ahead of the wing roots.
Two built.
