Manufacturer Mikulin
First run October 1939
Major applications Ilyushin Il-2
Developed into Mikulin AM-37

The Mikulin AM-35 was a 1930s Soviet piston aircraft engine.[1] Derived from the AM-34FRN, the AM-35 entered production in 1940 and was used on the MiG-1 and MiG-3 World War II fighters as well as the Petlyakov Pe-8 heavy bomber. The engine was very similar to the AM-38F of the Ilyushin Il-2, and built in the same plant (Kuybyshev, in late 1941). It was for this fact that Mikulin was forced to focus production on the AM-38F, thus discontinuing construction of the AM-35.
