Tum-R-11

 

The Tumansky R-11 (initially AM-11) turbojet engine was developed by A.A. Mikulin, S.K. Tumansky, and B.S. Stechkin as a twin-spool axial-flow high-altitude non-afterburning turbojet for Yakovlev Yak-25RV reconnaissance aircraft. This engine was the first Soviet twin-spool turbojet. It was first run in early 1956. The basic design was very successful and it was evolved into Tumansky R-13 and Tumansky R-25. Also experimental Tumansky R-21 was an evolution of R-11. A total of 20,900 R-11 engines were built.

 

Variants:
R-11V-300 - first production version, high-altitude, non-afterburning
R-11F-300 (R-37F) - afterburning version, entered production in 1956, used on MiG-21F, P and U.
R-11AF-300 - improved version for Yakovlev Yak-28B, L and U.
R-11F2-300 - new compressor, afterburner and nozzle, used on MiG-21P, PF and FL.
R-11AF2-300 - R-11F2-300 adapted for Yakovlev Yak-28I, R and P.
R-11F2S-300 - upgraded version for MiG-21PFM, PFS, S, U and UM, and for Sukhoi Su-15, UT and UM.
