Yakovlev Yak-25RV

Yakovlev Yak-28

Similar in shape as the Yak-25 the Yak-28 also has jet engines in long pods under the wings and a tandem main gear. The aft main gear is placed behind the wings, so that there is a lot of room between the front and aft gear. The nose is often pointed.

Yakovlev Yak-36

This Yakovlev design has a big oval, split air intake in the nose feeding two engines with each a swivelling nozzle on each side of the fuselage. Furthermore, it has a tandem landing gear with wing tip wheels and nearly a T-tail.

Yakovlev Yak-38

The Soviet counterpart of the Harrier has a lift fan behind the canopy and two swivelling exhausts at the rear to enable vertical take-off and landing. Other features are short delta wings and a pointed top of vertical stabiliser.

The smallest three engined jet airliner in the world has straight wings, all engines at the rear of the fuselage and big, single wheel main landing gears. It is about the same size as Falcon trijet, but with a T-tail.

Unlike the other airliners with three jet engines at/in the rear fuselage the Yak-42 has engines with separate exhausts for the fan and core flows. Moreover, it is the only one with four wheels on each main landing gear leg, divided over two axis.

Yakovlev Yak-52

This two seat trainer has a radial engine, elevated canopy with multiple frames and a vertical stabiliser curved from the dorsal fin until the underside of the fuselage, giving it an egg shape at the back. Typical is the forward retracting main gear. The gears remain partially extended though.

Yokosuka MXY7 Ohka

A rocket powered or unpowered aircraft, hence no air intakes, used by the Japanese as kamikaze weapon against ships. It has short span straight wings, an H-tail and a framed bubble canopy.
