Additional Information

Combat experience of the war in Spain has shown that the power of fire two machine guns ShKAS caliber 7.62 mm, which were armed with And-16 type 5 for modern air combat, has become insufficient. This led to the appearance of the following modification - I-16 type 10, which became the most numerous of all the options under construction fighter I-16. To increase the firepower of the I-16, a pair of synchronized ShKAS machine guns with 650 rounds of ammunition were installed in the nose of the aircraft, firing through the plane of the propeller. Machine gun barrels protruded above the top of the hood. To cover the breech of the machine guns, at the top of the nose of the fuselage were installed two fairings. At the end of March 1938, the first batch of I-16 type 10 arrived in Spain where there was a civil war where the new fighter was named "Super Mosca" (Super Mosca). After the signing of the Treaty on mutual assistance between the Soviet Union and China in August 1937, the Chinese air force was transferred about 200 fighters And-16 different modifications. However, the most numerous of them were I-16 type 10.
