History
A.S.Moskalev was an outstanding Soviet aircraft designer who created a lot of unconventional projects, many of which were built and successfully flew. The SAM-7 was an extraordinary tailless all-metal aircraft featuring the delta wing with two fins on its edges and a short fuselage with the separate pilot and gunner cockpits. The plane was powered with the M-34 engine (750 hp) cooled by the vapouring radiator in flight. The retractable conventional radiator housed behind the pilot's cockpit was used on low speeds and on take-off. The wooden propeller had four blades. Airplane's armament consisted of four 7.62mm ShKAS machine guns : two above the engine and two flexible - in the gunner's cockpit. The SAM-7 was built in 1934-1935 and was initially tested on the aircraft plant airfield. Despite good characteristics the whole program was cancelled by the VVS in favour of the same delta wing tailless bomber K-12 which entered small series production on the same plant a year later.
