In Moscow, the model of the wing "Tadpole" was blown out - a strangely shaped subsonic aircraft

Specifically for aerodynamic tests, TsAGI has developed a new wing model with mechanized

The model was placed in a wind tunnel in which the airflow can be accelerated to a speed of about 70 m/s - Mach 0.2.

During the tests, engineers tested the operation of the wing for takeoff and landing. Prior to that, the TsAGI had already tested the wing at high speeds.

TsAGI are developing aircraft with a fuselagedrop-shaped "Tadpole" from the beginning of 2010. Its strange form should increase the aerodynamic properties, which will allow speeds of up to thousands of kilometers per hour. The maximum flight range is up to 4.2 thousand km.
