Supersonic aircraft.

The real mastering of supersonic speed is connected with development of two- engine, two-seater supersonic combat aircraft Yak-28.

The first from this family was Yak-28B - jet bomber for low/middle altitude attaks without target visibility.

Later on there were developed the following versions:

  • Yak-28L, Yak-28I — bombers with different types of armament control systems;
  • reconnaissance aircraft Yak-28R, Yak-28RR and Yak-28BI - reconnaissance aircraft with side view;
  • jammer Yak-28PP;
  • trainer Yak-28U;
  • all weather interceptor Yak-28P could fly at speed up to 1900 km/h with range up to 2150 km; one of the prototypes Yak-28PM with afterburner engines reached speed of 2400 km/h.

The Yak-28 type aircraft were in operation more than 25 years.
