Caption: Aleksei Isayev (1908-1971), Soviet engineer and rocket scientist. Isayev began his career in aviation. He used engineering qualifications to design the undercarriages for bombers. During the Second World War he was tasked with developing a rocket-powered fighter plane, the BI. With no real Russian experience of working with rockets, the design had to start from scratch. But by the end of the war Isayev was sufficiently knowledgeable to be sent to acquire German rocket technology. After the war he developed engines for surface-to- air and submarine-based missiles.
