SINCE so little information has been made available in this country with regard to Russian aero‐engines, it was thought worth‐while to attempt to compile a description of this engine, although it was first produced at least fifteen years ago. This description is necessarily incomplete and to some extent disjointed because most of it is based on references contained in the book Aero‐Engines—Design and Detail Calculations, edited by A. E. Zaikin, of the Joukowsky Military Aviation Academy of Kiev, and published in 1941 by the State Publishing House of the Defence Industry. This book was not intended to describe any one engine but rather, to indicate the merits and demerits of various components of many engines including English, American, French and German products. It is known that most of the aero‐engines produced in Russia are of foreign origin and for this reason it was assumed that interest would be taken in the AM.34 which does appear to be of Russian design.
