A.V. Silvanskii is a blurred figure, hardly taken seriously by Shavrov and other historians yet responsible in 1938-1939 for small fighter aircraft.

IS Deignation from Istrebitel Silvanskii, designed at OKB formed at GAZ where Silvanskii worked, no indicaton of how funded. Partners V.D. Yarovitskii and Yu.B. Sturtsel. Aircraft described as similar to I16 but with slimmer M88 engine and short single-strut landing gear; criticisms unbelievable, including inadequate recess for retracted wheel which accordingly ruined wing profile, and inadequate ground clearance for propeller. Eventually Silvanskii cropped 100 millimeters off each propeller blade. Thus aircraft could hardly take-off and could not climb, but undeterred designer (refused flight test facilities at factory) brought IS to Moscow and prevailed upon LII to carry out test programme. Unnamed pilot struggled into air and at full power found aircraft on point of stall at 300 meters; managed to effect landing, claiming IS would not fly. Silvanskii bankrupted, and industry delegation BANNED him from further design. No data.
