Junkers T.21 / T.22

 

1st Flight 1923

The Junkers T.21 was a reconnaissance aircraft designed in Germany in the early 1920s and produced in the Soviet Union at the Junkers plant at Fili for use by the Soviet Air Force.

T 22: single-seat fighter version, very similar to the T.21 but with its wing lowered almost to the top of the fuselage to reduce drag, the pilot’s cockpit moved back further than the gunner’s position on the T.21 and a more rounded rudder.

First of two flew 30 November 1923.

J 28: two-seat fighter version of T-21 with a 400 hp BMW VI engine.

No production.
