I.A.R.14

<...>
  Последним проектом истребителя, сделанным Элие Карафоли для компании I.A.R., стал I.A.R.15, также 1933 года выпуска, оснащавшийся звездообразным двигателем Gnome-Rhone 9Krse мощностью 600 л. с.
The I.A.R.15 Single-seat Fighter Monoplane (600 h.p. Gnome-Rhone 9Krse engine).
Considered inferior to the PZL P.11b on the score of manoeuvrability, the I.A.R.15 - the prototype of which is illustrated - was restricted to a series of five aircraft.
The IAR-15 under construction at the Brasov plants during mid-1933. For the first time, a radial replaced the usual liquid-cooled engine previously employed in Carafoli designs. Otherwise, the construction was similar to earlier models. At left, is the the rear fuselage of the simultaneously-developed IAR-16 fighter prototype.

Этот истребитель I.A.R.15 попал в годы Второй мировой войны в Люфтваффе и входил в состав 51-й истребительной эскадры.
The I.A.R.16 brought indigenous Romanian fighter design to an end for more than a dozen years. The first Romanian fighter with an all-metal structure, it failed to progress further than prototype stage.
