This text was with the picture!

"Vladimir S Vakhistrov
He is the pioneer (to my knowledge) of the parasite-concept. His first experiment dates from 1930. He launched a aerial target from a R-1 biplane. This test resulted in the idea to launch manned fighters in the air to make their range longer.
The first test with manned fighters was done by placing two modified (removed lower wing from this biplane) I-4 fighters on top of the wing of a TB-1 (ANT-4). The modification of the biplanes was done because they feared that the lower wing would be in the turbulent air from the propeller of the "Aviamatka" (=mother aircraft). First flight of this combination was on 31 December 1931.
The combination was called "Samolyot zveno" (= aircraft nest). Vakhistrov and all the pilots received a Red Star Order for this successful test. Further development of the system lead to a combination of 6 airplanes. The mother aircraft, two aircraft on top of the wing, two aircraft below the wing and one aircraft under the fuselage. This last aircraft hooked up when the rest was in the air.
I hear you think: "Those combinations are pure circus acts, they have no operational potential." Well, you are wrong. The Russians used these combinations on 16 missions. The first attack was made on a refinery in Romania on 1 August 1941. "

I asked our friend Capt. Haddock (aka F19_Haddock) and this is what he gave me:

"Aviamatka" PVO (transport aircraft for aerial defense), consisting of an assembly of no less than six aircraft! This configuration was successfully tested in November of 1935, the TB-3 "Mother ship" took off with two I-15s on top of its wings, and two I-16s suspended under its wings. Once airborne, a trapeze was deployed and the I-Z flown by .

That makes this a Grigorovich IZ.
