The Kalinin K-3 was a Soviet air ambulancemonoplane designed by Konstantin Kalinin. The K-3 was based in part on both the Kalinin K-1 and K-2 and was powered by a BMW IV engine. It had a metal frame and an enclosed cabin, holding four passengers or two stretchers. A large hatch allowed stretchers to be easily loaded and unloaded. Production of the K-3 began in 1927.
