I-16 type 6
I-16 type 6 with M-25A engine - similar to type 5, with M-25A engine of 730 hp, like type 5, armed with two ShKAS machine guns located in the wing , outside the plane of the propeller throwing. First flight in 1937
Taking into account the wishes of the pilots (low reliability of the movable canopy), the designers made the cockpit open with a visor preserved on all subsequent modifications, which was certainly a step back. Flight data corresponded to type 5.
The chassis wheels (750 × 100), which turned out to be too narrow for Spanish airfields, were replaced with wider ones (750 × 150). To protect the surfaces of the stabilizer from small stones flying out from under the wheels, the lower surfaces of the stabilizer and elevators were sheathed with a double layer of canvas.
