Forthcoming book - Rogozarski IK-3

I am happy to announce that in the coming months the next airplane book I wrote together with Nenad Miklušev will be published with Kagero Publishing, who also published my Dornier Do 22 book. The airplane in question is Rogozarski IK-3, a Royal Yugoslav Air Force fighter. Nenad and i used many before unpublished references to detail the entire story behind this airplane, it's predecessors and post war developments. Apart from 135 photos, there will be detailed technical drawings and color profiles made by Nenad. Also something completely new this time, a detailed 3D model of IK-3 by Branislav Mirkov with the entire wing and fuselage structure, engine, cockpit and many other interesting items for the modelers!

Stay tuned for more information soon!

I am very happy to hear that! The IK-3 book will have about half the photographs but will have better technical drawings and of course the 3D profiles. I look forward to hearing your opinion when you get it.

Re: Forthcoming book - Rogozarski IK-3

Are there original period technical drawings in it? Does it have info of its flying characteristics (how it handled, stalling charactersitics, spin recovery etc.)?

Re: Forthcoming book - Rogozarski IK-3

Hello Jukka,


There are no original technical drawings in existance so we recreated technical drawings in detail for the prototype, first series, second series prototype, DB-601 engine project, dual seat project as well as post war S-49A and C. There are several pilot and other eyewitness accounts of IK-3 flying as well as combat, for example during a mock fight when it out turned the Bf-109E which was later used in the war against the Germans. There are several tables comparing the prototype, first series and second series models as well as comparing the IK-3 to two other fighters in the Royal Yugoslav Air Force, the Bf-109E-3a and Hawker Hurricane Mk. I.



Hope this answers your questions. If you have any other questions, plese do let me know!

Re: Forthcoming book - Rogozarski IK-3

I found an IK-3 in German markings on this forum (scroll down a little). I do not know if it is well known.

Re: Forthcoming book - Rogozarski IK-3

That photograph is a fake, it has circulated the internet for some time now. Anyhow, allegedly one IK-3 was taken along with two other airplanes (Ikarus Orkan and Beslin B-5) by rail to Germany. It was thought for a long time that it went to Rechlin but since the entire archive there was preserved, there was no mention in the documents about IK-3 being there so it most likely did not take place. A possible alternative destination was Berlin Airplane museum where all captured airplanes were brought. It is well known this museum was destroyed during one of the bombing raids, hence it is not possible to find any proof of IK-3 being there, i reasearched all available photos.



At least 3 IK-3s were captured at Zemun airfield in various condition, a number of photographs are in the book. We did a complete assesment and sketch of all captured airplanes at Zemun, there werre quite a few.
