Description

A Pu-15T firing S-8KOM rockets

This first-generation Pu-15K suffered extensive damage, including damage to the starboard engine. Pilot Kazu Kerman returned it safely to base on auxiliary thrust.

Reinforced engine nacelles allow Pu-15s to perform emergency gear-up landings with minimal damage to the airframe.

It’s got two wings and flies, is there anything else you need?
