    Thanks for sharing, Snautzer01.
    I did not know a Dinah was captured by Russians.

    This is awesome! does anyone have a translation or overall view of what the Russians thought of the aircraft?
    I read somewhere that Germany was interested in purchasing a licence to produce them, but ultimately nothing ever came of it.

    Due to numerous defects, both on engines (leaks of fluids, no ability to really control the RPM, problems with supercharger RPM (due to problems with gear changing?) etc.) and airframe encountered during the testing, the testing facility declined to give a final verdict on the aircraft. There was no documentation about the engines either.
    The particular test report focused mostly on engines and radio.
