Klimov VK-1
Klimov VK-1  -  Deutsches Museum, Munich  -  13 February 2011
The VK-1 is more or less a copy of the Rolls Royce Nene turbojet. It powered the MiG-15 and the Ilyushin Il-28.
This cut-away sample shows to advantage the single-spool layout with single-stage axial-flow turbine driving a double-sided centrifugal compressor.
