Sorry for the quality, but I thought this picture would be interesting, especially because there is no other picture of that aircraft that was a secret weapon of CCCP (USSR) in WWII. It was made in small numbers during 1942. Some got to the battlefield. It used a rocket engine. Intercepted some Nazi-German bombers headed for Moscow. But the project was cancelled due to the very low range, because the very powerful rocket engine required a lot of fuel. There is at least one remaining today in the Monino museum of Russian Air History near Moscow.
