The Pegas (Pegasus) was conceived as a light bomber and strike aircraft for use against enemy tank and mechanized infantry units, Tectinobgicai simplicity and low cost allowing mass production were the main requirements. Hence the aircraft was made of wood, plywood and cheap high-carbon steel.
Designed under the leadership of Maj. Gen. Dmitny L Tomashevich, the prototype was completed in January 1943 at aircraft factory No 288. State acceptance trials were completed in June 1943 and showed that Hie aircraft had poor maneuverability, low survivabiiity and took more than average pilot to master it. Hence, logically enough, It was not recommended for production. The second (top) and fourth and final prototypes are illustrated here.
