About This File

The Yak-23 was developed as a simple lightweight jet fighter, on Yakovlev's own initiative.

It was a development of the earlier Yak-15 and Yak-17 fighters, retaining their non-conventional layout with a jet engine in the fuselage nose and exhaust under the cockpit, but the construction was all new.

Its wings were derived from the Yak-19.

The Yak-23 used a Soviet copy of the British Rolls-Royce Derwent V turbojet engine, produced as the Klimov RD-500. It first flew on July 8, 1947.

After successful flights, it underwent state trials in 1948 and was accepted for series production.

It was evaluated as highly maneuverable, with a good acceleration and take-off and climb capabilities thanks to high thrust-to-weight ratio.

Faults were poor directional stability at speeds around Mach 0.86 and lack of cockpit pressurization.

Despite being one of the best straight-wing jet fighters, it was inferior to new swept-wing designs.
